Woodall's DAC and  DSC and  Bucklin and Woodall's similar QLTD
all meet mono-raise and Mutual Majority (aka Majority for Solid Coalitions).

DSC meets LNHarm and the rest meet LNHelp.

In any case, it may be possible to have one of the LNHs and be monotonic 
and have mutual majority. I'm not sure, but perhaps (doesn't one of DAC 
or DSC do this?). If so, it would be possible to see (at least) whether 
people strategize in the direction of early truncation by looking at 
methods that fail LNHarm but pass LNHelp; that is, Bucklin.
