This is a follow up to a discussion with Mike about his new
First Choice Criterion (strong form).  
I address the remainder to Mike.

So far, I think it means something like this,

It should never be necessary to vote a less-liked alternative equal
to or over one's favorite in order to ensure the sincere CW wins.

But what's missing is the "necessary for WHO" part.  That is, who
has to be co-operating to ensure the CW win.  For example, "all
voters" or "any majority of voters".

Also, could you provide an example of ballots where VA Condorcet
passes, but Marginal Condorcet fails this criterion.
