+1, I would like to reflect on the quorum rule. In the end, looking at how
many people map and how many people take part in tagging mailing list
discussions and voting on tags, any number we can reasonably put there will
be ridiculous compared to the number of mappers. On this background there
is not much difference between a vote of 6 people and one of 18. If we want
to stick to the quorum (what does likely make sense to avoid the
theoretical problem of one or two people alone "occupying" useful key or
value names with unusual definitions), I suggest to lower it even more,
like requiring at least 5 positive votes and a 2 third majority of positive
votes (or "not more than one third negative votes").
