Kent Crispin's proposal avoids that problem: an organization can join and
designates one representative. This representative has one vote, and can
not vote again as an individual member.

I don't see what good it would do. Why would an organization join in this
case? I know ISOC's "sponsorship" model was mentionned, but this is only
for large or large-ish, highly motivated companies. I'm more interested in
small organizations.
