With all due respect. The user in your example where I was refering to, 
*would* be allowed to vote. During the discussion about the definition 
of the Active Contributor, we've changed it so a seasonal mapper would 
not be denied voting.

The definition of Active Contributors is about *active* contributors. 
Would you not expect that contributors who are actively involved with 
OSM that they would at least do some more work than an occasional 
once-a-year mapping? Based on the definition in the CT people know what 
to do to be involved with the future license of OSM. If contributing in 
3 different months during the last year would be too much of a burden, 
are you then really involved?
And just in case that's really too hard, join the OSMF as a member.
