But are these really author/design team meetings or are they really
interims?

A meeting amongst authors doesn't need to be an interim, it's more like
a design team -- in both cases contribution of the individuals is
reflected in a draft. 

A meeting that is taking the place of discussion on a list, with
non-authors contributing, certainly does qualify as an interim.
