I do not think that the packages we are talking about here in this
thread might frequently trigger some voting / popularity contest. If
really more than one NACK would be rised we most probably do not see
such an salvage candidate as we actually have in mind here. If more
than two people would really NACK we probably have awaken some people
who might start caring about the package again - so it might serve to
salvage it by the original maintainers which is fine as well.
I would suggest to apply the proposed rules because I do see more danger
in getting no salvaging process at all because of endless discusion
about this process and I would bear the risk that the rules will not
work in some exceptional cases (as for all rules).
