Even if I am my favorite candidate (and wish to be elected), there is no guarantee
that sending myself to the completion convention is my best move. My presence in
this convention could alter the winner undesirably from my perspective.

Also, there's a second election at this convention! Supposing the method used at
this convention satisfies weak FBC, what have we gained (in terms of FBC compliance)
by voting for delegates first?

I might say this, but I haven't understood why "this method might come very close
to satisfying the Strong FBC."
