I  think we we referring to two different  "defaults"--  I  was 
referring to the voter who does nothing but give one candidate a number 
1 , and you refer to a voter  who numbers all the candidates but doesn't 
approve any pairs.
How big an advantage do strategic pair approvers have over sincere 
rankers who use your suggested  default pair approving strategy ?  (Just 
now the point of  having the voters rate the candidates instead of just 
ranking them has dawned on me.)  If  the answer is very small, then you 
may even have stumbled upon a  practicable method!  (rather than just a 
theoretical curiosity).
Very interesting and congratulations!
