Great idea - usually the people involved in the trade are left wondering why their vote got vetoed, which invariably leads to arguments.
Frankly, vetoed trades can sour the entire league, and it's in Yahoo's best interests to provide a better vetoing system ... keeping us all sane and happy will keep us coming back :) Vetoed trades are by FAR the most frustrating, and biggest stress-point, of playing Fantasy.
I would suggest also having an option to make the results league-viewable only AFTER/IF the trade gets vetoed. I find people tend to jump on the bandwagon once they know somebody else has vetoed a trade, and this needs to be avoided. It snowballs into a mob mentality veto. Each person should be voting on a trade individually, without influence from others, while providing a reason for a veto.
Additionally, there should be an option for the commish(es) to have a final veto over the veto results. That way, everyone can still vote anonymously, but the commish(es) can still cancel the veto (allow the trade to proceed) in the event of unfounded or unfair vetoes.
Also, Yahoo should let us configure the exact number of vetoes required to cancel a trade. Setting a global 1/3 of votes may not work for all leagues. For my league, I would like to set the bar higher (especially to avoid the snowball instances as explained above).
