I agree that supermajority would be better than simple majority here.
Moving to simple majority seems too radical.  Over time it's more
prone to building a PMC that cannot easily agree on things.  If
consensus has proven too difficult to reach for a group this large,
then softening it a bit to supermajority seems like a better first
step then moving all the way to simple majority.
