I believe you are talking about a system with dual interface: one via
a browser, and another that allows to use Emacs for most of the tasks.

That'd be OK at least with me, but the problem is I don't yet see how
this could be done with GitLab or any other system that was mentioned
in the discussions so far.

I really hope so.

For this, we'd need to agree on the list of the desired features,
probably prioritized by their importance.  Once we have that, we could
decide that having all the features whose priority is greater than
some agreed-upon number N is enough to switch.  Theoretically, I don't
see any problems with this decision; the devil is as always in the
details: to come up with a list of the features, agree on their
priorities, and implement them.
