With 10 members, 5 present, if 4 vote FOR and 1 ABSTAINS, then if all 5
missing members were present and voted AGAINST, it would fail. The
requirement for it to be a valid "bypass" is that the presence of the
remaining members _would not change the outcome_. I'm prepared to allow
ties to go in favor of the members present, but abstentions must work
against the unanimity requirement.
