Dragging a prior request onto the table: MeTa notifications in MeFi/AskMe threads.

The idea had a lot of positive support, and there seemed to be some misunderstanding from mods on what I was proposing. This is not a Talk page for every post.
Here's the idea:
-User A wants to make a MetaTalk post about Thread X
-On the post form in MetaTalk, there is a field that can be filled in with the post number (and subsite name)
-In Thread X, a message appears notifying the commenters that that thread is currently being discussed in MetaTalk (see cortex's mockup
-Possible further derails/fistfights are more efficiently routed to the MetaTalk thread.
I know we use a linked "MeTa" as a perfectly functional version of this idea, but an official notice would hopefully attract more eyeballs.
