I believe that most voters would feel worse about having to rank Favorite equal with Compromise than they would about ranking Favorite ahead of Compromise while approving both.
If you collapse the order, then nobody can tell from your ballot which you prefer, unless (somehow) approval can distinguish between two equally ranked candidates.
