actually this is how things are (and were) done nonetheless. There are lots
of proposals that got rejected with zero no-votes, just because they hadn't
gotten enough yes votes. The rules state that you need an absolute majority
of "yes" for the approval. If a proposal gets rejected in a voting, this
doesn't mean you cannot repropose it (indeed this is what is done here for
the second time).

+1, usually if there are a lot of "no"-votes there is something wrong, even
if there is a majority of "yes"-votes.
