Here is the formal proposed change, based on the outcome of this thread.
It should be voted on by the TC at next week's meeting.

In order to cope with future expected growth in the number of projects,
future Technical Committees will have 13 directly-elected members. The
TC Charter[1] will be amended as follows:

'TC members' section:
First sentence should now read: "The TC is composed of 13
directly-elected members."

'Election for extra TC seats' section:
Section should be renamed "Election for TC seats" and first sentence
should be replaced with: "The 13 TC seats are partially renewed every 6
months using staggered elections: 6 seats are renewed every Fall, and 7
seats are renewed every Spring. Seats are valid for one-year terms."

'Voters for extra TC seats ("ATC")' section:
Section should be renamed 'Voters for TC seats ("ATC")' and first words
be changed to "The TC seats are elected..."

'Candidates for extra TC seats' section:
Section should be renamed 'Candidates for TC seats'

'Initial Committee' section:
Section should now read: "The current TC will serve as TC until the
elections in Fall 2013. At that point, the two TC members who still had
6 months to serve get a 6-month seat, and an election is run to
determine the 11 other members. Candidates ranking 1st to 6th would get
one-year seats, and candidates ranking 7th to 11th would get 6-month
seats. Spring 2014 elections should see the normal renewal of 7 seats."
