Maybe one could go one step further and only declare a motion as passed
if there is an absolute majority after 7 days. (Meaning that more than
one half of the active TUs voted YES)

This would simplify the voting procedure a lot, but would higher the
barrier for a motion to pass. e.g. results that express mainly
indifference with a slight tendency to YES (like 5 yes, 4 no and 15 
abstain votes) would no longer pass.
