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 because this meta isn't really just for stuff related to SO, it's for the whole Stack Exchange network Commented Aug 5, 2011 at 17:05

    If that's the case, shouldn't it be called "Meta Stack Exchange"? Commented Aug 5, 2011 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 Commented Aug 5, 2011 at 17:11
