Yes, but you cannot reflect this properly in a simple rule. Like if
someone is clearly active and missed the mails and only notices past
the 2 week grace period, then the required interview could be as short
as simply having the council vote.

I do not think a single council member should be the judge of current
activity though... this could cause all sorts of social problems if
one messes up. Hence I feel that clearly defining what to do is
necessary, so that any given point a council member can act within a
defined range of possibilities, thus lifting the decision from one
individual alone.
