What about having 'option 1' and 'option 2', and a neutral summary of
both proposals?

I believe that zack and I can just agree on such a summary.

First draft:
Both proposals aim at creating a regular turn-over of Technical
Committee members, by enforcing a term limit of four years.
The proposals differ in the way they address resignations or removals of
other TC members.
'Option 1' chooses to not consider them, which could result in three
(or more) TC members leaving the TC during the same year in such events.
'Option 2' chooses to substract the number of resignations/removals from
the required number of expirations. As a result, it is more likely that
only two members will be automatically expired (unless there are more
than two resignations). But it is also more likely that membership of
some TC members will exceed four years due to the resignations of other
TC members.
