I'll send some additional changes later today.  Mostly, I'm fine
with the additions you made.

However, the private voting part requires some more thought -- from
a practical point of view, staff and liaisons received by ALAC will
have knowledge of private votes, if these are going to happen on the
private list, or on committee telephone conferences.  (Which I'd
greatly prefer over using explicit CC lists -- that only generates
errors.) The rules should be modified accordingly.

Also, the challenge process for private votes looks a little
over-complicated.  I mean, what's the attack model we try to defend
against here?  The chair mis-counting votes?  In that case, you
don't need a majority process to fix things.  Either the chair fixes
things, or the next vote is about replacing him... ;-) If a vote has
been faked by a third party, that can also be fixed easily, given
the size of the committee.

I'm wondering if we can get a password-protected archive of the
private list.  That would make some things much easier.
