I was referring to the policy being on Meta since Meta is the central
repository for policies and information that applies cross-wiki.

What kind of situations does Meta have that would call for "office 
actions" as they were practiced on the English Wikipedia?

With respect to the larger issue, the Wikimedia Foundation office must 
have the authority to intervene on all projects when necessary for legal 
reasons. It would be difficult to abdicate this. The details and process 
might vary (the closure of the French Wikiquote was done rather 
differently), and I wouldn't recommend referring everyone to the English 
Wikipedia version as the blanket official policy, but the principle 
remains the same.
