Yes, random methods typically aim at the same target. Maybe the
target can be said to be proportionality here. All single winner
methods of course need not aim at proportionality.
I was thinking mainly about methods where all unused quota would be
inherited to the next election. Proportionality is more deterministic
than with random methods. Inheritance also causes problems when
compared to randomness (e.g. changes in party structure, clear
changes in opinions).
