I asked how many end-user organizations were potentially new members, and
this tells me 7000. And previously we've had ~600 ISP members involved in
There is definitely the potential to swamp the current "enfranchisment", but
I doubt more than 10% of the 7000 will notice or care.
And if they *do* get involved, then they should be enfranchised.
The only reason I can see to do this 3-elections-miss and you are out is if
there is some quorum issue. That's not to trivialize that issue, but maybe a
better definition of quorum would be better.
