I say no. If we are to accept identification-request questions w/o visual-audio artefacts, we will need to accept a lack of knowledge/awareness of our users in distinguishing anime and non-Japanese animation (technically only their). Whenever one attempts to a question of this type is the words of the asker (OP) should be taken with a grain of salt -- as one's memory is rarely infallible.
This is not to say allow all questions that "look like" anime, but rather give a bit of leeway to the asker (especially if they are new), if they believe the media that's on the tip of their tongue is anime.
SciFi.SE (TV & Movies SE too) on occasion gets questions tagged as anime, when they're not.
Some examples that I've come upon:
I'd rather not be picky about whether or not a series is anime, because sometimes the lines are blurred. I doubt that the distinction is really that important to most users. If we do anything we should usually include a note letting the asker know that the name of the media and how it isn't anime.
tl;dr: I think such questions are okay to stay as is for now, but let try not to let it go out of hand in the future.
