Or you could say that it had a very narrow subset of all 
HTML-stakeholders in it - and those who did not belong in that subset 
soon learned that their ideas were shut down.

The HTML WG is perhaps "dysfunctional" by the criteria that it is very 
much caught up in procedure and complaining, but that is looking at the 
symptoms, not the cause. The WHAT WG culture is definately not without 
is flaws and is one (of many) contributing factors.
