Should reputation from SO carry over to Meta?

I've noticed that the Stack Overflow meta has its own reputation but on Super User meta it's derived from parent site. Why is not same procedure is following there for reputation of its own meta itself?


It's Meta.Stackoverflow which is special; every other StackExchange site shares rep with its Meta site.

  • Why other meta ain't special only this one is? – avirk Aug 5 '11 at 17:05
  • @avirk because this meta isn't really just for stuff related to SO, it's for the whole Stack Exchange network – Daniel DiPaolo Aug 5 '11 at 17:05

    If that's the case, shouldn't it be called "Meta Stack Exchange"? – Chris Frederick Aug 5 '11 at 17:08
  • @Chris There's some confusion because there was a Meta Stack Exchange, but it was only for SE 1.0 sites. meta.stackexchange.com does point here now, but the name hasn't changed – Michael Mrozek Aug 5 '11 at 17:11
