I appreciate your comments in this thread and agree with them nearly entirely.

I think those who want to completely eliminate the vote, while well intentioned, would be doing a disservice to the community and ultimately OpenStack itself. 

I very strongly support the idea of evolving the voting process to try to enhance its value rather than doing away with it entirely. The method you’ve proposed seems like a reasonable place to start.
