Is it worthwhile to migrate questions that already have accepted answers?

Yes, absolutely! Those questions belong to the other site, accepted or not, because that's the place where they will be useful for other users in the future.

Caveat: if the question could belong on another site, but is still on-topic for the current site, leave it be. Focus your efforts on questions that don't belong, or aren't getting answered.

In the case of questions that do not belong on the current site, I agree with this answer. But if the question could belong on another site, but is still on-topic for the current site, I don't believe it should be migrated. –  Grace Note Aug 17 '10 at 12:39

Yes, migrate them. For the same reason that you don't put CSS files in your images folder.

I'd argue for leaving both images and css files in the root folder and letting the search engine do the job, but that's way too off the scope here... –  Cawas Jun 14 '11 at 12:29

With an accepted answer it means the OP has got a solution that works and doesn't need answers from a different set of people, so in that sense migrating it would serve no purpose.

Having said that it does mean that it sets a precedent for future questions on this topic, so migrating it would show where such questions should be asked in future.
