There is another viewpoint here that had better be considered, though ... we
invite the community to participate in these votes, and I can guarantee you
that the majority of people who are reading the vote thread have never
bothered to read the rules on what votes count (indeed, they are more likely
than not to be unaware there IS such a thing as binding versus non-binding
votes).

Are you really preferring that we HIDE the fact that their (non-PMC members)
vote doesn't officially count (although it does influence consensus), and
have them go away pissed off because they thought they were misled?
