I think that's a bad idea.  I've seen it cause problems elsewhere: for
example, SPI currently has too many idle members because it hasn't
been renewing memberships.  That's just getting fixed, I think.

As well as making all turnout figures seem horrible low, this could
also make it impossible to dissolve the association (to replace it
with another form, for example).

I'm against unnecessary bureaucracy, but a regular ping seems
necessary. Surely it could be automated to reduce bureaucracy.
