They clearly aren't needed.

It should be stricken.

Instead, a majority of council members can vote to impeach if warranted, 
and an election is immediately held.  The impeached councilor is 
eligible to re-run.  The impeached councilor still is in power until 
voted out.

If some councilor is making a big difference in Gentoo, I don't want to 
see them booted simply because they couldn't make two meeting dates, and 
there is no reason they should have to appoint a sub (though they should 
of course be able to).  Ditto for the whole mess where the council 
managed to miss-communicate a date and we had to hold another election. 
   What value did that add?

We're adults.  Let's elect council members once per year, and have 
provisions for problems, but let's not micro-manage how often they must 
meet/etc.

I'm not aware of any serious organization that has these kinds of rules 
for their board of directors...
