At three, you can still meet quorum ;P

Seriously, with as large a community as Cocoon has, if the PMC is that
small then something is terribly wrong.

Now if for some strange freak happenstance that the Cocoon community
dried up and there were only three people with any real interest in it
then it might be something where Cocoon either floats away into the
"ether" or they make a new kick-but community.
