I believe I answered this question by saying:
It is because IRV fails to count votes in a better way that
contributes to (if not causes) its failing of more fundamental
criteria important to every voting method.
The fact that IRV is not monotonic, etc. stems, at least in part,
from the way it counts votes. As such, we can criticize the way by
which it counts votes.
