Just a small comment. Shouldn't we really be calling this worry about 'movement building' rather than 'meta'? Meta to me means things like cause prioritisation.

Yeah I didn't have a great term for it so I just went with the term that was used previously and made sure to define what I meant by it. I think this is a little broader than movement building -- I like the suggestion of "promotion traps" above.
