Hehe nope. For any given AC, Metaing's improved mind quake will always out DPS Improved Rule of One. Even if the mob has an optimal IRoO-favoured sweet spot of 11590 AC, IRoO will deal 510 DPS, while Meta's IMQ will deal 570. IRoO does have the advantage of subtracting 100 points of NR from the target though, and this is significantly moar useful than whatever debuff Meta's IMQ can throw at a raid boss.
In PvP, Metaing's improved mind quake is hands down the best froobable nuke there is. However, resonance blast does 15% moar DPS, and coupled with the fact that it has -3000 taunt, allows it to be spammable on raid bosses without phear of over-aggro. RB thus is the best PvM nuke.

I assume you're talking about this from a raid perspective where you are not holding aggro. This should not be a major problem. With a hardcore CPU upgrade and IOR (which you should have in a raid), that would amount to -43% nano cost already. That means Meta's IMQ will only cost 285 nano. If you use high QL advanced nano rechargers from team missions together with your normal stims, you should be able to spam it without fail. Gotta watch the aggro though.
Mortem does have a good point though. When you say you're into PvM, are you moar into raids or into soloing dyna bosses? Raid-wise, crats are highly valued for their auras/debuffs/mezzing abilities. That's definitely something to keep in mind when choosing who to level.
