There is an entry in the Wiki FAQ about the use of Wiki Signatures, but what's really needed is for wikizens to explore the issues themselves; it's no good trying to impose cultural standards from one wiki (or person) on another.
So, When To Sign?
Some things to read:
We can ignore <http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?InitialsAsSignatures> because we have a technical solution - we can make initials into Wiki Names.
Might there not also be a technical solution to how often Wiki Names were needed, namely some sort of change-history for each page which would show you a rough idea of who modified what when...? What modified when, yes; who, maybe not (it's technically doable but difficult, and anyway, comes straight back to the philosophical crux).
