Personally I'm not too worried about sleepers. Or at least I don't want
to put much effort into worrying about the issue until it becomes a
problem, ie when we start to have a hard time finding a majority of
PSCers sending in a vote. (ie we can't find more than 1/2 of us to vote
one way or another, not just >1/2 voting)
What is a quorum for us? 2/3rds total or >1/2 voting one way?
(todo for RFC3)

As for time periords, we are a quiet list so perhaps: "to stay active
you should have registered a vote in the last 10 calls for votes, or the
last year, whichever is longer.". And not worry about getting into
kicking folks off until it is obvious we need to bring new people in.
