The proposals I've seen on list recently (i.e. Harmony) had replies with votes 
to the initial proposal.  This is also the way dev@httpd works: people post a 
proposal and then people reply with votes to that proposal.  There is usually 
no 'Vote' thread (unless for some reason it is *really* contentious which has 
probably happened once since I've been there).

I view the explicit 'tally' email as the only real requirement to ensure that 
no one has their votes miscounted and that a sufficient quorum exists to 
proceed.  IMHO, an explicitly separate 'Vote' thread is overkill and serves no 
real purpose.  -- justin
