I have sorta followed this discussion, and my observation is that it would seem that a generous spirit beats bureaucracy--at least eventually. In community living, setting an example beats brow-beating and nit-picking (although I might leave nits on the clothes when folding them).

My partner and I have 2 children, and we are probably the heaviest users of the laundry room. The laundry fairy visits us occasionally as well, and what a wonderful surprise that is to come back to neatly folded laundry! I think that if we had not used a diaper service, but were doing all the diaper washing at home we would have wanted our own washer. We have high quality residential type machines, rather than commercial ones, and in 5 years have had the repair folk out two or three times for minor repairs on the now 8 year old washer and dryer that my household donated. I am not sure I would want to have take all our laundry to a laundromat, but the laundry room works well for us. I do advocate having instructions so that people can move laundry along if someone forgets it.
