If this is the same experience that others have, I would propose that the first sentence instead read "It is not possible to save a segment longer than 100 km in the Waze Map Editor."

I agree.

Now there are two major changes:
1) WME does not allow saving a segment longer than about 100km (99980.0 m, to the nearest 10th of a meter, as measured in toolbox)
2) It is possible to edit properties of segments which extend far outside of one's editable area, so one of the reasons for avoiding long (> 10km) segments no longer applies.

_____________________________________
The maximum length segment I could save was 99980.0 m, using the toolbox measuring tool.
Attempting to save a segment 99980.1 m produced the error "The highlighted segment is too long"

What is the criterion for establishing sufficient consensus for wiki updates like this?

Well I think it has sat long enough for any interested parties to raise objections.
The next step, since this is a global page, is to bring this to the attention of the global moderators, who will make sure that we have followed the proper procedure.

My request is here:

As far as I could tell, the moderators did not object to the proposed text. Therefore, I have made the change.
