Have you reread the proposals on the Strategy wiki recently?  Most are by
and about the projects.

You can argue over whether the 5-yr strategic plan that was based on that
work in 2010 was simply for the WMF's part in the movement, or for the
movement as a whole...  But the vast majority of the work done there was
thinking and planning for the future of the projects.  Which is
traditionally Meta material.

I agree that different organizations drawing from shared strategic
brainstorming should clearly delineate their plans from those of other
groups in the movement.  That doesn't require a different wiki for every
organization with a plan.  A simple style guide for plans should suffice.
