The biggest problem with using meta is that none of the standard tools
work across wikis.  You don't get notifications of talk page changes
on meta when you're hacking on Wikipedia, or Wikibooks.  The watchlist
feature covers one project at a time, etc.

This should have been fixed years ago.  It hasn't been.  Hopefully one
of the achievements of the new board will be to integrate the projects

But in the mean time, I don't think it's at all unusual for a
candidate to publish his or her discussion page on a particular
project.  Checking meta all the time is just ridiculous.
