Didn't we already have this discussion? Similarily I could
ask whether the monotonicity resp. consistency resp.
participation criterion presumes sincere voting, whether
this or that election method is applied to sincere voting
or how you define sincere voting.

Clones are defined on the actually casted ballots. Whether
these ballots are sincere is irrelevant.

By the way: Who is "some of us"?.
