The whole situation around the Close Votes queue being too large is a perfect example of how damaged our Meta system here is, and why people really need to focus on the problem in their questions rather than blurting out solutions and just sort of touching the problem without actually explaining it. Now we have who knows how many questions and feature requests floating around on Meta which all relate to each other, and a lot of which cover the same exact information, or suggest things so incredibly similar that they could probably do with just a single post that combines them into the best solution.
What it should be.
There definitely should be one canonical post on Meta. What is it about? Highlighting the problem of the oversized queue. It should explain all the different opinions that people have brought up for why it is a problem and why it should be fixed. No solutions. They simply don't belong in the question body. They should all be posted as separate answers to the question.
So what's the problem?
Well, once you've gone down the dark road of having a different question for every possible solution, it's just too damn hard to combine them all together into one question. You'd not only have to write a new question to explain the problem thoroughly, but you'd also have track down every possible solution and post those all as answers to that question, and then close them all as duplicates. You'd also get all of those people whining that "my question is a specific feature request and not a duplicate of that" and the whole world will literally fall apart.
This issue is actually something that has bugged me for a long time, and I've been working on a lengthy blog to identify the problems with it and how to work around it. Admittedly, some recent personal issues have caused it to fall into the depths of my computer, but now that everything has settled down, I'm a bit excited to get working on it again and hopefully have it published soon. It also explains everything much more thoroughly than I have here.
