In this case part of the decision was taken because the chairs
of the three Working Groups meeting this week wanted a face-to-face
meeting in Jan/Feb, but that was pretty close to the Tech Plenary.
I suspect that even if the TP had been in the USA, the XMl Query WG
wouldn't be meeting there.
In general you are right though, there are a lot more meetings
in North America than elsewhere for XML Query. There were more
participants from Europe 5 years ago, but I'm not sure that there
were more non-US meeting locations then. It's been more about
travel policies of some of the participating organisations.
