Ryan,

Oups... I must get tired, I completely missed your comment about "leaving the consensus on the mailing list". Apologize. I thought that you meant to have "all work done on the mailing list". My arguments were going in the direction to keep the calls, but I understand now that I did not need to convince you. 
Regarding the consensus discussions, I think your request is fair, and what we can do is to make effort to put items on the agenda, only when there is a chance to reach consensus and avoid looping discussion. 

Regards,
Virginie

Personally, I do believe that there is value to have live discussions among participants.

In general, consensus happens in meetings at W3C, not over list like IETF. However, we can send proposals to list ahead of both meetings and do two separate consensus meetings so no-one is left out!
