I'm cool with that.  I just thought of another problem with the 75%
rule, which would be if more than one person enter or leave Red Hat
employment during their terms; it would then be possible to top 75% on
one side or the other.  Yeah, better to take it out.  

But the best statement would not be to label the seats by who's in RH
and who's not, but rather to declare which ones *right now* will be up
for election first, and then those "seat numbers" are from then on the
division point.  That way you avoid any murkiness if employment status
changes for people.

I know there's a good way to lay this out in the page; I'll take a crack
at it.
