Dan, just a few thoughts--
First of all, cardboard is technically speaking only one layer of paper, like the type of posterboard you used to buy for grade school projects and should compost pretty well. There are no heavy metal [dude]-based inks used in the US as well as in the EU and Japan and Korean packaging. I don't even think the Chinese use these types of inks [too expensive]. So, composting it would be OK. But I agree that the best use for this is in product, i.e. cardboard to cardboard; newspapers for newspapers. If you reduce/recycle at the source [the newspaper printers, cardboard converters] you can "save a tree" or so it goes.
