When going back to basics no one (except some MQA Meridean endorsed flagship labels?) records MQA, everyone records WAV or DSD. I don't see the whole foodchain change quickly. This means that MQA at this moment in time adds nothing more than a redundant container serving marketing purposes, actually missleading "high end" end users. The MQA file IS NOT what left the studio. It's just another encoded format, solely developed to reinvigorate backcatalogue and push certification licensing down the foodchain. Rather than discussing the technicalities of the format, it's plain misleading marketing based on the current state of the business.
