Can you back that up with some reasoning to counter my reasoning why we should 
all work together in one place? En.wiki does just fine as an uber 
encyclopedia of encyclopedias with thousands of edits a day - why can't we 
have a metawiki for planning /all/ Wikimedia functions? 

Having separate metawikis for every Wikimedia projects is a mistake - there 
simply will not be enough activity on any one to create a viable community. 
Simply have different Main Pages for every project and project language 
version. Each project and project version could also have its own RC if it 
wanted; simply have every page relating to that project or project version 
listed on one page and use the "Related changes" function. Or better yet use 
category tags as a basis for RC sorting.
