You said: No vote forbidding A => A is not forbidden.
This reasoning is not correct.

Which projects? Maybe we need to point the board to them and ask them
to report about how they conduct them.
Personally, not being on the board myself, I'd weigh a few more things
to judge a project's community than just if they do conf calls or not.
But it would be interesting to have a look.
