This is a statement-y Meta question.
When I initiated the Magento SE proposal I was contacted by Stack and warned that the proposal might get closed. This was due to the large number of Magento questions being serviced under StackOverflow.
One of the reasons why the Magento SE proposal was "allowed" to go forward by the Stack team was because I and we made a case for a place to allow more than just developer questions. Whereas Magento is both a framework and an application, and due to experts in the former often being able to help answer questions regarding the latter, the proposal moved forward. If Magento SE is to be a viable alternative to the now-defunct Magento forums, these user questions must have a welcome home here.
It's not entirely clear that Magento SE will be the ultimate Magento forum, but the above must be borne out to even entertain the notion.
