Specifically for the TLD votes, not for anything else.  The reasoning was that a TLD is a pretty big deal, and we should expect a strong support behind any such additions.  Having a new TLD pass by a single vote does not show a strong interest by the community and probably means the charter needs to be refined.

And honestly, if an idea is good then there's usually strong support behind it.  If half the group is on the fence or just doesn't like the idea, then something is wrong and it needs to be reconsidered.

That and why do we need a 2/3 majority for such a small community of people? That could make things complicated, and possibly result in a lot of good ideas (and good people) being thrown out.

I'd say the voting period should be longer than 7 days, maybe 14 minimum,
since many people don't check the list too often and we want to make sure
we get as many people as possible to vote on major things like this.
