Oops, guess I had the wrong quota method in mind. I think
there was another Demorep proposal that was named by you,
and defined as Approval with 50% quota. Or maybe that was
yet another variation. Too tired to go checking the archives
If it isn't named yet, it would be logical to name it AMA by
dropping the "C": Approval quota -> Most Approval.
