The danger is that email may decline as a common communication method.For some specialised applications, possibly; for "general" use then highly improbable IMHO.
You also queried Oath's apparent indifference to "the chaos in Yahoo Groups". There have been odd rumours for years suggesting that Yahoo was probably hoping that groups would simply "go away", and of course that is exactly what has happened, courtesy of Groups.io! Oath may also take the view that there are more important matters to deal with than "groups".
For myself I wouldn't lose a moment's sleep if for some reason "groups by email" were suddenly disabled; the Groups.io web interface is just so much better than Yahoo's ever was; much faster responding and generally much more user - friendly, to the point where my personal choice is now to use web access rather than email. I find it much easier to keep track of the views expressed by contributors using web access rather than email.
Of course, as in so many things, YMMV!
