For one, how or when would you call this vote successful?
If there is a +3, a majority of every IPMC member, a majority from only those 
who voted, etc.

With Noel not being voted on *at the same time*, there is no proper comparison 
possible on the result (votes for Jukka) and 'undetermined result (support for 
Noel).
