UPDATE: It looks that the requested feature is already in place...the body of the post that triggered this request originaly wasn't the same as the title, this was caused by an edit (I included the details at the bottom)
As I understand, only title questions aren't allowed on SE because we want questions descriptions longer than what can be included in the title and that a good title summarizes the content of the question body, not to repeat it textually, and there is no value added on having the same content both on the title and the body (I'm not talking about including the title in the body but about including the title in the body and nothing else).
I think that this might be implemented as an opt-in feature that the CM should be able to turn on/off on existing sites and on new sites during the alpha/beta stage this setting might be discussed on their respective Meta.
The current Ask page has three stages:
- Welcome modal shown only to new askers
- Drafting a question
- Reviewing with / without errors
The "block" might be implemented by highlingithing in red the body box and showing a text like the following:
Body should be used to provide details and any research

I forked a query found in this answer to help me to find the case that triggered this request.
Orinaly the question body wasn't the same as the title, that was result from a edit. I didn't reviewed yet the older cases.
How to do Xbody:
How to do X?(extra question mark) or
How to X?(one less word) or
I want to do X(variation). Easy to bypass and doesn't really improve things. That's the problem with a lot of suggestions about automatically blocking something - it's easy to trick the blocking mechanism. The other side of this is that the thing that's blocked is sometimes actually OK and shouldn't have been blocked.
