What is the Math.SE take on questions like Perfect set without rationals, whose answer, judging from the comment, is known to the OP?

I think maybe this question is a "seed" question. See OP's profile:

I am a Mathoverflow user who wants to enable this site to have high quality, as opposed to being too sloppy a site. So I am seeding the site with good quality questions that are suitable for all college students; but won't be accepted in MathOverflow. I also want this site to be a home to sensible questions that are brutally closed by the question-closers in MathOverflow.

    $\begingroup$ It seems likely that it is a seed question, yes. Two points: 1) As the site moves further into public beta, I hope "the need for seed" will decrease to zero in finite time. 2) A question that looks like a homework question may not be such a great question to seed the site with, as the present instance seems to show. $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 29, 2010 at 0:13
