There are many uses for election methods besides public election proposals.  They are used in various sports contexts, pattern recognition software, search engines, etc.    Cross fertilization between disciplines is one of the greatest stimulants of progress.  When the Cartesian coordinate system was recognized as a bridge between algebra and geometry the resulting cross fertilization prepared the way for both subjects to flourish as never before.
If you want to stay in your tiny little public proposal world, that's fine, but don't expect everybody else to limit themselves to your provincial point of view.
