Yes, there are many people who attend a meeting almost every single session,
and often have conflicts.

Some of them are Area Directors (IESG), and IAB.
But, many of them are just active members.

If your WG does not require or experience interactions with people outside
some specific working set, then I recommend not dealing with this time zone.
Hold a virtual interim meeting.  Hold a series of them.

The CELLAR WG, of which I'm co-chair, has met only once at an IETF meeting,
for instance.
It's a group of ~8 to ~12 people who are very github/ML focused, and who
mostly work on these documents outside of their day$job.

{typing this in an editor that is saving it's files over NFSv4, btw}
