A concern is that if the same person is RM, and the vote is always
done at the same time (and so the 12 hour window never shifts, time-
wise) then the vote will *always* favor those who are in the
timezone of that vote.

One reason for the 72hour rule is to ensure that no PMC
member feels disenfranchised... not all PMC members are in
the same timezone and not all PMC members should be assumed
to be paid to work on the code (and thus available 24/7
as it were). Longer vote times handle those cases.

PMCs are *inclusive*. The processes and procedures are
designed to maintain that inclusivity.
