In my opinion you could find that a failure of virtually any criterion is
unconstitutional. That's why I don't think this is a promising way to try
to defeat methods we don't like. I think it's mostly dangerous.

How certain are you that a judicial decision finding IRV to be illegal,
wouldn't simultaneously pose a problem or two for Range?

I say we had best not give the referees invitations to ban all our methods.
