In a supermajority-required TC vote involving eight TC members, currently
a supermajority of 6 can override a minority of 2, since this meets the
current 3:1 ratio.  After this change, the supermajority vote has to be
strictly greater than 3:1, so a vote of 6-2 would not pass the
supermajority requirement.
