I agree, with a caveat: At the level of vote-counting it should be
one person - one vote. That is, I can't join as Kent Crispin,
individual; and join as Songbird, the business; and ABC, the
organization; and XYZ, another organization, and get 4 votes. The
rules should be: any individual or organization can join; an
organization joining must select a person to represent them; every
person who is a member, whether on their own behalf, or as a
representative of an organization, gets exactly one vote. So, if
two organizations designate the same person as their representative,
they effectively merge their votes into a single vote.
