[Foundation] a simple reform

I believe *some* is the operative word here.  Specifically, those that 
seem most in need of treatment for CADD[1] (Council Attention Deficiency 
Disorder) are (in the order that I've seen, YMMV):
DJ Adams
Jeremie Miller (no relation)
Julian Missig / Joe Hildebrand

Maybe it would be better to grant the council a "censure" over its own 
membership, so that those that don't respond in a reasonable amount of 
time be replaced/removed on an interim schedule.

A possible problem I can forsee with a six month term is that many of 
our most actively discussed Standards-Track JEPs have taken that long to 
go from EXPERIMENTAL to DRAFT.  Since a JEP now needs sponsorship and 
tentative buy-in by at least *one* council memeber to move forward, it 
would seem more prudent to allow the Council to weed itself on an 
interim basis.

Just a thought... (-:

[1]  Nothing personal guys, so I hope you won't lynch me for that (-: 
It's what I've noticed as far as voting schedules go.
