Yes, certainly. At least for a while.
But again, the role of that new site would be different from the role of
meta and this might enter in conflict, in particular with regards to the
In my opinion, meta-wiki already is the wiki of the wikimedia movement

people from various Wikimedia communities, chapters, and foundation
Wikimedia projets tend to have two main pages : one main page for
content (e.g. [[Main Page]]) and one main page for the community (e.g.
[[Project:Community portal]]). We could use this system on meta to
have two landing pages, one for PR and one for internal stuff (just
like on other Wikimedia projects).
This sounds much more like potential progress than shifting things to a
new wiki. I can see Florence's point about the challenges with Meta's
main page making it not just a working environment, but a very
strange-looking one. I think a more public-facing main page and separate
working portal would be beneficial. I note that while I frequently visit
Meta (much more than I edit there), I almost never go there through what
is now the main page. I usually arrive through links to other pages, and
then navigate to anything else I need to look at. I would almost say
that its main page, by not knowing which of these purposes it serves, is
presently failing at both.
