By the way, I have to agree with Steve Eppley that _every_
criterion (e.g. Monotonicity, Participation) should be
defined in the probabilistic context so that it is not
possible to circumvent the corresponding problems simply
by saying that "some random mechanisms" should be used in
these problematic situations. Criteria should always be
defined in such a manner that (1) those who support random
election methods are urged to say explicitely which random
mechanism should be used and that (2) it can be checked
whether this strategical problem is really removed by the
proposed random mechanism.
