Nah. First: votes should be rare in the first place. Go for consensus
instead. Apache Subversion has had maybe 3 votes in its 15 year history.

And if you *do* end up voting? People already know who is binding or not.
This isn't some star chamber PMC. Everybody knows each other already. If
the PMC is voting differently from the others, then you have a problem,
regardless of not/binding.

Anyways... we'll run the experiment, and see how it works. We may have a
candidate already.
