The author of the article neglected the fact that Cumulative voting
isn't being proposed for single-winner elections, but it _has_ been
mentioned as a single-winner method. Just as Cardinal Ratings is
strategically equivalent to Approval, Cumulative is strategically
equivalent to Plurality. So Approval would be a much better proposal
than Cumulative for single-winner elections, in addition to being
easier to count; Cumulative would need new count software, but
Approval wouldn't.
