The final call has to be made by the admins, who are the only ones who can create or change forums and other basic board characteristics. Sometimes
what may seem like an obvious decision may be trumped by not-so-obvious factors known to the admins, who often work in strange and mysterious ways.
As for moderator workload, I may be overlooking something (wouldn't be the first time), but that's probably not going to be a big deal. In the past,
even when large numbers of threads had to be moved, things were usually worked out within a few days and without too much pain. Again, that's
something the admins can help with as they may see fit.
Having said all that, I personally think this is a great idea and recommend going for it.
Thanks for an excellent suggestion.
