That might change. It would be nice to fix this definition so that it
works for N:M as well as N:1.

Please do feel free to suggest improvements to the wording. I want
this to be clear and unambiguous.
How about if we s/supermajority/majority/ in what I just proposed ?

How you implement this is up to you, I think, but 1. clearly it would

Certainly we would like to run all the votes concurrently.
