We've had the same conversation about a year ago when we moved to W3 XG on
what to do with the GitHub issues. We decided to move them all to the W3
tracker and only use the W3 tracker from then onwards (we only had 8 at the
time so the manual process wasn't too hard). The rationale was similar to
what you outlined, and also because we didn't want to have to monitor
issues in two places...
