A proposal expires after a year.  If it has been updated, the clock 
restarts.  If a proposal has not been updated within a year, it may 
be a sign that there isn't any interest in discussing it and adopting 
it as a policy.

The proposal could get sent back to the mailing list over and over if 
there wasn't the clause which allows an author to withdraw a 
proposal.  Even with that clause, there can be a problem if a 
proposal never expires as an author can be unresponsive.  There has 
been such a case.
