Please don't define majority to be two-thirds.  Majority is a
well-defined term which means more than half.  Redefining majority is
a bad idea.  When a two-thirds vote is needed, it is easy to state
"two-thirds vote".  Off hand, I can't think of a need to distinguish
between two-thirds and two-thirds plus one.  I would choose two-thirds 
because it is simpler.
