the use of the word Quorum with respect to either the current or
proposed Constituction is misleading at best, and outrightly false
at face value.

case in point: as we add more voters that actively vote _against_ a
proposal, we can cause an option to ``fail to meet quorum.'' that goes
against every applicable definition of quorum that i can come across.

a more accurate way to say it is that the Constitution and it's proposed
replacement support an approval margin.
