No, per Matt's reply, you were right and I was wrong, the intent is to
direct discussion to Discourse. I was confused because I was just
following the process documentation (silly me!) which doesn't explain
any of this.

The changes to  how discussions were to go to discourse happened around the same time as Ben was laid off. I think the documentation not getting updated is just one of ... many things left undone.
