Me too.  However, is it the case that, nowadays (or planned for the future), 
you need a garage account?  If so, that might put off some non-developers 
(for example in the user community) from contributing, which would be a 
problem.  We know, from earlier discussions, that some users do not like 
having to create new accounts at all, but particularly in non-user-friendly, 
developer-oriented systems.

If the Wiki and garage are linked in this way, we need to make it very clear 
that creating a garage account is not only for developers.  Preferably 
providing a simple form on the wiki site which will create the necessary 
garage account.
