Current understanding of reverberation chambers is firmly funded upon their being operated as overmoded cavities. A proper definition of this condition has been lacking for a long time, while being regarded as automatically satisfied as soon as a large (and unspecified) number of normal modes are set to resonate at the frequency of operation of the chamber. In this paper we summarize the most important steps needed to introduce in a formal way a proper definition of the overmoded condition,
