Hey Michael - its a good question. And I think the answer is, this is 
not a vote that can be vetoed with a single -1. Though I'm not sure its 
completely clear.

Quoting the Apache page on voting:

There are essentially three types of vote:

   1. Code modifications,
   2. Package releases
   3. Procedural

Votes on procedural issues follow the common format of majority rule 
unless otherwise stated.

Likewise, package release cannot be vetoed. Only Code modifications with 
a valid technical reason can be vetoed.

So from what I gather, this is closest to procedural and would be 
majority. But that's not entirely clear. But it does appear that Apache
favors for majority for this type of thing (or enough +1's), and saves 
vetoes for code changes.
