OOXML Payback Time as Global Standards Work in SC 34 "Grinds to a Halt"

Q: What do you get when you add too many new members to a committee and those members later refuse to vote?
A: A committee where work grinds to a halt.

The "original" members still try to vote, but the "fresh" members do not vote, yet still:

at least 50% of the P [Principal] members eligible to vote must in fact return a ballot.

So if the "fresh" members do not behave, the work stops. Nice? Not much. In my opinion they should be kicked out strong, after they receive an appropriate warning and do not respond to it either.
