This would be the most accurate reflection of who regularly attends meetings in each ward, as well as reducing the burden at other key times, such as tithing settlement, histories, Christmas & holidays, etc.
It's all relative, and perhaps this would be more accurate in your corner of the vineyard. I imagine that there will not be a solution that will be good for everyone.
For example, using this suggestion, we would lose budget money and would not have created our most recent ward. Hardly anyone is here in May and August, and many are gone the third week and a whole lot more are gone the fourth week of November.
I am sure some careful thought has been given to the months selected. And the process suggested earlier in this topic is correct for those who desire to report in different months. Your priesthood leaders recommend changes to their priesthood leaders, and so on, up the line of authority to those who make the actual decisions. It is a marvelous process to behold.
