No, hence the last sentence in my previous mail: "...if there is a way of
accounting for this in a satisfactory manner when it comes to working out
But if it is a valid preference to express, and the voting system isn't able
to account for it, then the voting system is inadequate. This may be due to
a desire to "always have a clear outcome", which is IMHO not to be preferred
over "allowing the voters to fully and clearly express their preferences."
