Kaiting is saying that even though quorum hasn't been met, that it's
impossible for the vote to fail on the basis of opposition.

If the rest of the TUs voted nay, then it would be 17 aye vs 13 nay
which would still be a majority for the motion.

How do they do it in real life if quorum isn't met, but support for the
motion is enough that it shouldn't really matter.
