I'm not a particular expert in these criteria. Forest is discussing FBC
and DMC in detail in some of his recent posts. As for some of the
others, could it be true that they follow from the following fact about
DMC: When a majority prefers X to Y, and rank X above Y, and place their
approval cutoff between X and Y, then Y is doubly defeated by X and thus
Y cannot win.

Yours, Jobst
