Bruce, I would like to raise a topic for discussion before the Council call,
and we may want to ask the ICANN GC or assistant GC to advise the Council.

As I recall, consensus policy takes 2/3s majority. Due to weighted voting
there are 27 total votes. However, with one vacancy of the Nominating
Committee appointees, there are actually only 26 votes. Thus 2/3s would be
of the 26 votes, not 27. Let's confirm that first with General Counsel.

Then, 2/3s would be .... 17 votes, or 18 votes? I think it is 17.4, which
would be 17.
