I would simplify as much as possible, add the reasoning, and leave off
the the fine-detail procedural stuff:
"In order to keep the PSC fresh, members will annually confirm their
continued involvement. This should happen by June 1st of each year,
afterwhich nominations for their replacement may commence at the
discretion of the chair. They are not replaced, and retain voting rights,
until such point as their replacement member is formally accepted."
Overly-automatic timeouts are poor management IMO, it puts the burden onto
the ruleset instead of the humans. Maybe that avoids some personal
confrontation, but is a bit of a cop-out of our responsibilities IMO.
