great list. It reminds me of "provision" and "ultimate," [here, I'm unsure of your intended meaning but I believe you mean something like] back when Alfonso first showed up.

Dígame una cosa. Que pasa si vayas a una reunión bien aburrida en que muy
poco se resuelve. Alguien te pregunta, como fue la reunión.
Se puede decir, no fue muy bien. Tuvimos una reunión regular como siempre. Me parece que todas las reuniones que tenemos con regularidad son reuniones regulares.

¿Se puede decir eso?

Sí, por supuesto, se puede. Es otro sentido de regular. El caso que dices no se refiere a la frecuencia sino a la calidad de la reunión. Regular tiene ambos sentidos. Aún así, lo normal sería decir tenemos reuniones malas, mediocres... con regularidad, para evitar la ambigüedad. Pero queda gracioso el ejemplo que pones. Obviamente, es un juego de palabras, pues estás jugando con los dos sentidos de regular.

Importante:
  • Qué pasa si + indicativo.
  • Acentos en los pronombres interrogativos.
Te faltan los signos de interrogación. Creo que no los pones por pereza.
