We agree that plain IRV gives strong incentives for
compromising-reversal. But I'm comparing MM(po) to beatpath(wv), not to
Theoretical analysis tells us that compromising-reversal incentive in
beatpath(wv) is too minor to deserve much worry. You attempt to contradict
this analysis by citing the behavior of one person in an internet poll.

Plain IRV has a much stronger incentive for compromising-reversal than
beatpath(wv), because it doesn't allow equal ranking, and because it
doesn't limit compromising incentive to scenarios with no CW.
