If we come up with multiple different proposals and put these to the
vote/poll, we will exclude the Participants because only the
Members are polling/voting.

	"In appointing their members, the chartering organizations
	should note that the CCWG-Accountability's decision-making
	methodologies require that CCWG-Accountability members act by
	consensus, and that polling will only be used in rare
	instances and with the recognition that such polls do not
	constitute votes."

	"In a rare case, the chair(s) may decide that the use of a
	poll is reasonable to assess the level of support for a
	recommendation.  However, care should be taken in using polls
	that they do not become votes, as there are often
	disagreements about the meanings of the poll questions or of
	the poll results."

I do not have a concern about polling about the current 2/3 proposal.

I personally am comfortable with the 60% solution, if it gets a Public
