A plurality isn't good enough.  A clear consensus is what you need -- since 
SPI is now composed of disparate parts, you can't take action which would 
affect all member organizations just on the basis of a 50.5% majority.  
You need buy-in from *all* constituent groups individually, as well as a 
majority of members.  Otherwise, the associated organizations who just 
joined will leave.
