Check the LifeWiki notability guidelines to get a sense of what warrants a wiki page. I would say a page is not warranted in this case. Small patterns like this belong in pattern collections, not on the wiki.

There are too many p3 oscillators to keep track of them all. We usually only save them when they have some special property (e.g., if they are small or sparky or have high volatility). I can't see anything obvious about this pattern that makes it notable. Anyway, here is a stator minimization found with JLS: x = 16, y = 14, rule = B3/S234bo2bo$2b6o2bo$bo6b3o$bobob2o$2b2o3b2o$5bo2bo$2b5o8bo$bo2b2o7b3o$7b2o3bo$2b2obobo2bo2bo$2b2obo2b4obo$o10b2o$2ob3ob3o$7bo!

I’d be highly surprised if this oscillator was not known, but I do want to point out that it can be made fairly easily given the blocked p4:

Blocked p4 and blocked p4 predecessor

I'm pretty sure the second one evolves into the blocked p4.
That that is, is. That that is not, is not. Is that it? It is.
A predecessor to my favorite oscillator of all time:

the second one evolves into a t-nosed p4. The starting thing (except for the v spark) is already a blocked p4. (BP43 to be precise.)

There are many known T-nosed p4 supports, most of them very similar to each other. They're not typically considered interesting unless they have some novel property. Here are three examples from jslife:
