I think the best progress will be made in meetings with a friendly 
atmosphere of co-operation. This, along with a focus on tangible outcomes 
such as agreement on:

* passages of specification text;
* conformance requirements;
* or at least a plan for moving forwards.

The official HTMLWG meetings I attended at TPAC 2007 daunted me. I felt a 
lot of pressure in the room and tension between the participants. 
Conversations rarely flowed. Karl Dubost managed to overcome this to some 
extent during the authoring guide session he hosted. It required a great 
deal of skill and charm, though. :)

The 5-person Unconference session into data table accessibility was amicable 
and enlightening for all who attended. There was a shared interest and an 
easygoing flow with minimal "Process".

Making the big meetings feel and work like that would be brilliant, imho.
