I'm just wondering if the current sub-menu of options for questions i.e.: ...
link | edit | close (2) | flag
...might be a bit alarming to new users, who see their questions apparently about to be closed when in actual fact they're just being gently transported (as if held gracefully aloft on a beam of pure, luxuriant joy) to a more appropriate stack site.
In other words, I wonder whether it might be wise to split out the "normal" close votes with those that recommend migration in the sub-menu so that it reads:
link | edit | close | migrate (2) | flag
I realise that this would dilute the purity of the existing "one close link to rule them all" approach, but I'd personally say that migration is an odd fit in there anyway.
Then again, perhaps I'm just tremendously mentally ill.
I've also noticed an increasing trend where off-topic questions that are ripe for migration to one of the existing listed sites are simply tagged as off-topic (with no destination site specified). The propsed "migrate" link would potentially go some way to resolve this.

Also, I recall at one point, hovering the cursor over the names of the close-voters would tell you which close-reason each person chose, but that too is gone now.
