Wordpress has this as a checkbox option now. Granted a blog is different than a forum, but how they compete against one another in Search is quite the same. Adding an AMP option would simply keep phpbb up-to-speed with other CMSes.
Well like you said here yourself: a Blog is different than a forum. And phpBB cannot be considered a CMS.
I've read some documentation about AMP, and as I understand it, it's not meant for dynamic websites with also much content from external sources. For instance: you need to serve everything through HTTPS. Good luck doing that with all kind of images en alike content from all over the internet. You'd need to set up a camo-proxy to route all that through your own server.
Also, what you see on a forum can be quite different from what the next user should see. Think of the basic guest/user/moderator roles.
I think that if you'd put enough effort into "AMP-ing" a forum you could pull it off, but it's not really what AMP is meant for IMO.
