[ARIN-consult] PDP Consultation Reminder

One thing I noticed, and would like community feedback on, is this
supermajority requirement (and 60-day deadline to avoid going to another
public policy meeting):

A Recommended Draft Policy that has undergone a successful Last Call
> discussion may be sent to the ARIN Board of Trustees for adoption
> consideration.  Decisions to send Recommended Draft Policies to the ARIN
> Board shall be made by the affirmative roll call vote of the two thirds of

Do folks feel that is an improvement over the current PDP (which requires a
simple majority of the full AC to send a draft policy to the board, with no
time limit)?  Or is that too high a bar?

Thanks in advance for any input,
