For something as core as license changes, I think it is important to get
100% voter turn out.

Regarding the secondary question of whether a +0 should block a license
change, it's worth pointing out that in the couple license related votes
that we have had on the PSC list most (maybe all) had an initial +0 from
someone.  And in each case, this prompted a discussion that allowed more
questions to be answered and more confidence accrued such that everyone
reached +1.  I think that's a healthy process to instill in the formal PSC
