not too difficult

that's pretty hard, but we could have 'how many participants are document 
editors'. That's a bigger investment than sending mails and more
accurate particpation-wise (imagine someone who would send emails just 
to send regrets for every call... ;)

Not all the big companies have the same profile (user companies vs. software

Overall, I find it quite interesting that this discussion around voting 
happens now, while we have more and more candidates and more voters, 
while in the past we hardly had more candidates than seats to fill
(and it seems to me that it was more worrying that the current situation)
