You would need one for each dimension that is being tested.

However, a assembly made up of clones would also vote the same way as
the people, if they were purely centrist.

This is kinda the same point I made in my post.  Would a voter prefer
an assembly with higher average utility of the candidates, or one
where he has 1 candidate who is an exact clone of him.
