IMHO we should resist the urge of quickly downvoting questions on devops.meta and instead answer or vote on answers - so that the results of the respective discussions (if valuable, of course) remain visible for reference as opposed to being wiped by the roomba only to be asked again later on?.

I mean, for example, questions like Should we start moving on-topic questions from SO and Serverfault to here?

According to this MetaSE post about auto deletion a question won't be deleted if it has an answer positively scored.

So there's no problem showing disagreement by voting on questions, the worst thing happening to them is that they get out of the devops.meta homepage.

That doesn't remove the need to answer it as best as possible to explain the overall disagreement when it's the case.

Yes, we should only downvote meta questions themselves if the meta question is poorly asked, or not constructive.
