Whether or not reviosioning goes in to be default, I'd actually like a
check box to mark edits as minor or not - even if only to tell whether
it is a simple comma correction edit or a major refactoring of a page.

[1] A little ps.: My point was that if humans mark an edit as minor,
software can handle it differently depending on ones settings - e.g.
send a notification or not, show it in a list of recent changes or
