I always thought this was a bit unusual for a Wikimedia policy to not be 
on Meta, especially when it has been invoked on projects other than 
en.wikipedia.  I know it has (in the past) been invoked on Wikibooks and 
a few other places as well, and certainly seems to be a policy that was 
not accepted by Wikipedians but rather an assertion of Foundation 
authority.  The only reason for its inclusion on Wikipedia is mainly 
because that is where the bulk of such legal requests have been made, 
due to the visibility of that project.

Barring some minor word changes to make it less Wikipedia-centric, I 
would also support moving this policy to Meta where it likely should 
have been in the first place.
