FWIW: I agree that perhaps we should have a more strenuous (and precise) definition of the "pass" criteria -- perhaps based on 2/3 (or more?) instead of 1/2 (...intentionally disregarding current ambiguities).  Note that I see this as an issue for MPI-<next>, however.

For MPI-3, I believe that all remaining votes will be consensus-enough that the application of Japan or prior rule interpretations likely will not matter.  

Hence, my proposal is to finish MPI-3 using the interpretation I've been using for the past 3-4 years solely for consistency.  This will give us a little time to clarify -- and potentially strengthen -- the "pass" criteria for MPI-<next>.
