I don't like this idea very much. Compare it to normal political elections,
for instance.

Politics does not always happen on mailing lists and a person can be very
well informed about the political situation and also "active" (for instance
by talking with friends, in family, etc.) in politics without being active
on such a mailing list.

So basically you'd deny all people who prefer to get informed by some other
means than this list about foundation politics of their voting rights.
