I agree with Stefan.
The diehards and/or 'core' users may very well continue to use the list, but
I suspect the vast majority of users (and *potential users*) to use the (a)
board, to learn from and ask/answer questions as they arise.
Any modern board would allow the user to 'subscribe' to a forum/thread,
which would for the most part give the results the same as a dedicated
Whether or not Musicbrainz has the resources (bandwidth/cpu/disk) and a few
caretakers to manage the operation of the proposed board seem to be the
most important questions to me.
