It was pointed out in an earlier draft thread that Q and quorum are
not the same - Q is a number defined earlier (4.2.7), while the quorum
depends on the type of vote, and is frequently a multiple of Q. While
A.6.2 could be read as *defining* Q to be the quorum requirement,
it could also be read as defining the quorum requirement to be the
previously defined value of Q.
