Yes, that would be clearer. However, given the subject of the thread
that this comes from, it was necessary to treat Mutual Majority as a 
method and not a criterion.

If I thought it was a novel discovery that carelessly electing from
the set of candidates permissible by Mutual Majority, could violate
mono-add-plump, then I would have used better wording.
