Sounds reasonable, although I thought that those advanced voting systems 
are also intended for avoiding multiple elections. Then again, if both 
elections lead to the same ranking at the top, and especially yield the 
same top candidate, then this proves the soundness of the method. On the 
other hand, a dictatorship would also satisfy this property. Yes, I know, 
there was a Nobel Prize about that ...
