Actually, we'd handle it this way:

	* First we'd have a vote on which resolution we want to pass
	  (A.3.1), which would have as option for the original proposal
	  and any amendments, and Further Discussion. Since there
	  weren't any amendments that received enough seconds, it would
	  look exactly like the above. This vote doesn't require a
	  supermajority or a quorum.

	* Then, once that vote was decided, we'd have a "final vote"
	  (A.3.2) whether to pass the resolution, the options on that ballot
	  being "Yes", "No" and "Further Discussion". That one requires
	  a supermajority of votes to rank Yes above No, and a supermajority
	  to rank Yes above Further Discussion to pass (A.6.7)
