The main problem is like you said that nobody uses them. I think
asynchronous discussions are great if you can wait for an opinion like this
one, but it isn't a real discussion. If you want to hear my opinion right
now... and I'm not here, then you're screwed. Chat sessions are perfect for
discussing something without having to wait until tomorrow or even later.
Like this one. The discussion started Saturday, and I can count the comments
on hands and toes. With an live chat sessions, you will have more
discussion, more people who will talk, more ideas.

Plus: mails can be ignored, or you can privately answer them. It harder to
do this in a chat session. The moderator can ask everyone to answer the
question, while a mail can be *woops* deleted or forgotten. I always had
discussions like this my whole life and I think it's the better way. But
that's just my opinion.

Yep, that's what mailing lists are for: asynchronous discussion. And
wikis are for collaborative asynchronous writing. The good news is
that we already have these two tools, we just have to use them
(actually, this is the hardest part).

If at some point we need more focused mailing lists for sub-team to
lower volume on this one, Launchpad does offer mailing lists for
teams. For instance, we could easily create a mailing list for
ubuntu-be web editors (to discuss the content of the website) since we
already have a Launchpad team. But i don't think we need that now.

For voting, I think it's one of the features of Launchpad Blueprints.
