Jackrabbit is a fairly good and recent example.  A bunch of people
dropped off the Jackrabbit PMC roster submitted to the Board because
they themselves stated that they weren't active and should be
emeritus.  Note that a critical difference perhaps from what you're
stating, I believe, was that the Jackrabbit folks were given the
choice to go emeritus and explicitly took up that offer - with the
understanding that they can re-join the PMC at any time.

The key may have been stressing that choosing to go emeritus is a very
very reversible action later on.  (Not making that a reversible action
was the fracas that Ant ran into.)  -- justin
