No.  Swish has a reverse index -- just like in the back of a book.
You can't ask from that kid of index which pages do not have some

That said, you might be able to make the meta a PropertyName, then
search for all records ("not akfjsoieeiwo")  sorted by that property
and then read records while that property is blank.
