It strikes that this is part of the problem; Perl is applying the en: 
procedures for deletion to meta. This is what we want to avoid.

This need not be the case. A unified login system is sorely needed - 
having to log in separately to each different site is a big hindrance to 
working on multiple projects. I believe that is a big part of what makes 
meta so poorly used. But integrating logins can be done without creating 
universal sysops, other than perhaps the new "stewards". The system 
should be able to provide different user abilities depending on which 
project you are working on.
