You can view them as voters who are debating staying home instead of
voting. The issue is whether this can benefit them and whether it matters.

A criterion more similar to what you have in mind, and which I consider
more essential and effective than mutual majority, is this rendition of
minimal defense:

"If a majority of the voters vote for X and don't vote for Y, then Y must 
not win."

Although, the effect of that criterion is that {A,B} are the possible
winners in both scenarios.
