Is "kunsido" always used in the sense of a formal meeting (business-related and such), or can it also be used for a more informal gathering of friends?

Informal would be "ni sidas kune"

" Komitata " is ugly. Why not " Komita " ?

I'm not sure when or why "komitato" was adopted as the word for "committee" but it's been in use for at least a hundred years. And "komitata" is the adjectival form. Sorry.
