I've tried several wordings for CW's in-cycle apportionment. I was using an 
unambiguous wording, but it was long. I shortened it, but introduced 
ambiguity. But here's a brief but unambiguous wording:

Each cycle's seats are given to its states in such a way that no state in 
that cycle recieves fewer seats than a state in that cycle that is smaller 
than it is,  and in such a way that, each state in the cycle receives the 
minimum number of seats consistent with that rule.
