Templates used in global block summaries should only reference Meta templates.
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

In order to provide clear, specific instructions to users affected to global blocks, it would be useful to be able to use templates in global block summaries - as seen in the example below.


Currently, using {{sampletemplate}} in the block summary simply links to Template:Sampletemplate on whichever project the global block message is received on.

The desired behaviour is to force any templates referred to in global block summaries to always reference to the meta template, and transcluded where {{colocationwebhost}} is shown in the below screenshot.
