In theory, if the domain's ranking drop was caused strictly due to emd issues (as is this topic is based) then while that demotion may carry on through 301 to the new one it should not 'stick' forever as the new domain is not subject to the emd issues.
My thoughts exactly, unless of course the issue is not because of the EMD in which case it would be kind of nice to have it eliminated anyway. We can then go back to the EMD which we (all, presumably?) loved anyway and work on the real issue.
