Once upon a time, W3C had restrictions on the number of employees of 
a given company in a Working Group. This limitation has disappeared
a long time ago, while formal voting still has one company = one vote
anyway. It does not make sense to continue the bikeshedding for ages
for a special case that happened only once in many years. The simplest
rule is to let the person at least continue until the next election so 
that no new election is needed. She/He can still resign voluntarily
if she/he chooses to do so. Should the relaxed rule cause an issue in
the future (when another case arise in 15years?), it would be ok to 
holler and revise.
