Depends a lot on the communities.
While I personally prefer IRC (or did, until it started dying of spam :( ), I also participate in many communities that use slack instead.

adding everyone's favorite real time service - but then they
commonly end up back at email and maybe IRC for real time chat

Not to beat a dead horse, but when somebody says "real time",
what I hear is "somebody important on the project, maybe even me,
is going to miss it."
As I understand it, ASWF projects are intended to have a very high
level of autonomy in what gets developed and how. I can't imagine
that each project community wouldn't decide on its own
communications style and mode. Though it's possible that for the
ones who choose to have a real time (aka people left out 😜) comm
channel, there may end up being an org-wide preference for which

Too echo Larry and Darin's the joy of living in a
crappy timezone where you are all mostly asleep, I hope that
mailing lists can at least be the main form of communication with
real-time being a supplement for the real-time
believe Larry has it correct. Chat is amazing for quick
collaboration and question answering but I suspect that these
discussions are actually meant for discussions and thus belong on
an email list / forum.

Am I just a cranky old man for preferring mail
Nope. I think its completely fair for the ASWF to just say no
to real-time options.
Just the number of mile-long emails when something contentious
is discussed always irritates me, especially when usually
people can be calmed down and come to level ground when its a
real-time interaction. So real solutions happen faster. That's all
hearsay, conjecture, and personal bias of course.
It is a significant nuisance when past e-mail/posts point to
dead links because of a change
in the collaboration tool
This is precisely why I propose the ideal solution would be
open source and hosted as a part of ASWF stack (sorry to
maintainers in advance if that actually happens)
