No, I don't think so.
The whole "resource questions on meta" thing is misguided in my view. Content about the English languages is supposed to be on main, not on meta. The on-site search doesn't search through meta posts, and new questions on main can't be closed as duplicates of questions on meta. Meta is for meta discussion, not for questions related to the subject matter of the site.
If we really won't accept such questions on main any longer, there is no place for them on either site. New ones should just be closed and deleted. And old ones that are significant, like this, should be on main and locked. That's exactly what a historical lock is for.
See this post by Robert Cartaino♦:
I'm seeing these list-of-resource questions being posted in meta as
a way to somehow allow questions that would otherwise not be allowed
on the main site. Meta is meant to provide support for the operation
of this site and we cannot let it morph into an alternative type of
There is a better solution.
If the community does not want excessive resource questions on the
main site, you can come to a consensus (in meta) that a select few
would be allowed (on the main Q&A). Incidentally, we are considering
ways to administer a limited number of these "big list" in much the
same way network wide. But in the meantime, posting them on meta is
not a viable solution.
How do we limit these question?
As for sending a mixed message to new users that asking broad resource
questions is fair game, you can add conspicuous notice to the top of
these posts (we have a historical lock if the thread gets
unmanageable) that essentially says this is an exceptional situation
and not be use as evidence that you can ask similar questions here.
In either case, posting these types of questions in meta is only
moving the problem to this site; i.e. you would be eliciting a type
of question by example that you would otherwise would not allow.
