I actually tend to disagree.
There are more reasons why some questions are flagged as it is too broad:
It is very generic (e.g. 'How to reverse?') and it would require a long time (and quiet a bit of work) to (properly) answer it.
The enquire is unsure about what we wants to know due to a lack of prior knowledge. Deducing the correct question can be an exhaustive quest.
There are resources on related sub-issues.
The question may be completely opinion based (e.g. 'What is your favorite color'?)
One broad question may be the duplicate of several old, more specific topics. This leads me to belive that the 'too broad' flag serves as a kind of warranty to the user. It makes sure that:
The enquire is interested in the topic and has done some research on
its own (e.g. looking for old questions). He / She may even know the problem.
I see how some questions deemed to be too broad may yield terrific answers, but motivating this kind of questions would degrade the discussion culture.
