A tight integration with MusicBrainz database would be very helpful in AcousticBrainz because it would allow us to better understand our data by using the MusicBrainz data in a lot of places in AB. A direct access to MusicBrainz database would mean we can directly query the database (one query per page) and thus would result in significant increase in speed with which AcousticBrainz loads. My proposal involves implementing the two methods of direct database access (a direct connection to MB database and importing the MB database in a separate schema in AB database) and then evaluate them by testing both the methods on the basis of certain criteria through which we would decide what method works better for us in order to use the MB data for implementing many features in AB and then working on implementations using the suitable method.
