I think I'm willing to agree with you here that quorum is not a great
name for what we have in Manoj's proposal.
And if you proposed a new name for it that accurately characterized
what it was and removed some confusion, I might second such a
proposal. I might also decide it wasn't worth the bother.
But whatever it's called, the discussion has convinced me at least
that it seems to be a good idea, especially including how it interacts
with the default option. There may be a better idea, but you have not
yet presented one.
And personally I don't think disagreement over whether quorum is a
reasonable name for what Manoj's proposing is a good reason to prefer
the default option to his proposal.
