How about the multiwinner transfering Condorcet I described about a
week ago (see "multiwinner pairwise"), modified so that if the
quotas haven't been reached when coming down to choosing the final
winners, only candidates of the affirmed groups are eligible?

I'll try to describe it more clearly if my previous post and this
suggested modification aren't clear enough.
