[EM] FBC and ICC, when equal ranks are allowed

I'm beginning to suspect that in the presence of equality and a 
reasonable definition of the ICC in that context, the AFB (FBC) and the 
ICC are compatible.

Consider River, for example, where the drainage system is set up 
according to minimum opposition, i.e. the drainage follows the paths of 
least resistance.

Voting favorite equal top with compromise in that scheme would not 
directly harm compromises chances.  Would it harm them indirectly 
without giving the win to favorite?
