I don't think that's the eventual plan at all - I think unsigned cancels
should be accepted unless the article in question is locked. Sites
which currently don't accept cancel I believe would move back to this if
there were a way for people who were actually having trouble to keep it
from happening, in the meantime they do this as a intermediate step.
