I don't - to be honest - see why we have to choose one or the other.
Surely both forums and mailing lists can be used, with people choosing
their favorite.

Anything important and urgent enough to demand the immediate attention
of all group members could be posted on both the forum and mailing
list. It's only a case of cut and paste.

Implementation doesn't have to be too hard either. UbuntuForums will
provide a forum to any LoCo team making a request for one. I for one
would prefer to use a forum, but will use a mailing list in
conjunction with it. I think this matter is important enough to have
proper vote on.
