Thanks to Rob and Juho for correcting me.  I would like to have a statement
about strategic immunity that doesn't rely on people judging the difficulty of
creating a top cycle.  Presumably creating a top cycle would require a number
of (effectively coordinated) insincere votes that is greater than half the
margin of the weakest sincere preference for the CW?

Is there any stronger statement that can be made for strategic immunity
of specific completion methods, ideally ones that satisfy the summability
