By what rule?

The problem case is where the option has majority, but fails
supermajority. It could then be argued that since it has majority, it
constitutes proof that there should never have been a supermajority
requirement and thus the simple majority suffices, or it could be argued
that it failed supermajority, hence modifies a foundation document,
hence requires supermajority. And it *will* be argued, no doubt.
