My interpretation of that item is, "Do you think election methods should have
strategy options, like AERLO?" All other things being equal, I say no, certainly
not: It would be better not to have to implement such options. (My opinion about 
approval cutoffs on ranked ballots is the same.)

Possibly the "best" method, with the "best" combination of properties, requires
a strategy option like AERLO. In that case I won't complain. But I don't think
it is the case, and if it is the case, I'll be disappointed.
