To the best of our ability, the FAQ should reflect the current policies of the site.
New users are more likely to read the FAQ and help pages than reading Meta. While we can help direct and advise users through comments, having the community standards being consistent in as many places as possible would make things a lot easier.
Since in-depth research of any sort is not required, we should not be telling users not to ask these questions.
However, it does make sense to advise people that while they are not banned or considered off-topic, that we're hoping for a little bit more. Moving this (possibly with a slight edit) to the How do I ask a good question? section seems like a suitable solution.
