So,,, would the new environment affect the compost enough, that it would no longer matter whether the decaying OM was originally 'fungal' in nature or 'bacterial'?
If so, to what extent??

I would like to have this point , not be lost... plz, don't submit to distraction and leave the question unanswered...
That question can only be answered by sampling microbiology before and after topsoil has been added.
