I don't understand what you mean in that paragraph.  I suspect we may be talking about two entirely different things.

Here is the timeline:
A. Director Decision (say to extend a WG Charter)
B. One AC rep initiates an AC appeal
C. W3C Team determines if 5% of the AC agrees that the AC should vote on the Director Decision.
D. if it reaches the 5% of the AC threashhold, the Team conducts an AC vote on whether to accept or reject the Director Decision.

As I understand it, you are concerned about step C.  You want it to be precisely specified how the Team determines if 5% of the AC wants the AC to vote on whether to accept or reject the Directors Decision.  

Step C is not the AC vote on the Director's decision.  It is whether at least 5% of the AC agree that there should be an AC vote on the Director's decision.

I think the Team should be free to figure out how to find out if 5% agree to having the vote - that it doesn't matter if they use an online form or an email address.
