- presentation style room setup
- short period of time (45 minutes is hardly enough for in-depth
  discussion, is it?)
- the expectation to have it all on video and hence the requirement
  to pass around the microphone, which I think hurts natural
  exchange in a physical space.

Now, I agree with Wookey that it would be nice to build an
all-inclusive atmosphere for these. And Paul's suggestion might be
worthwhile to pick up. But still, I think telepresence of any form
is going to dampen the amount of discussion/BoF interaction that is
going to happen.
