The table might be used for the 'Leave shadow copy' feature ...
If we can improve the performance of the forum module, by all means.
It would be a tremendous improvement for sites like drupal.org,
I don't mind removing the 'Leave shadow copy' feature if it makes the
code simpler, improves performance and de-clutters the node edit form.
Are you going to investigate this some more?
