That's true, but those votes wouldn't qualify under the IPR policy and procedures for any of the significant decisions, such as starting a working group, approving drafts, etc.  They're also not good enough for electing board members.

What are you proposing that these votes would be good enough for?

The community can always just have a lightweight version of voting.
Someone makes a proposal, others +1 it, boom done.
