Some things to consider about having an official set up:

Good place to get new members: The official forums are very commonly
the first resource people stumble upon to discover a LoCo team. TBH
that's where I looked and when I didn't see one there I assumed there
wasn't a forum set up yet.

Easy entry: A lot of people already have ubuntuforums logins, no need
to create new logins and set up a whole new forum user on a different
site. I've found that the key to success in these groups is making
things as easy as possible :)
