I'm pretty sure Mike judges ICT to be defection-resistant while ICA isn't.

Maybe predictably, I am a bit afraid of ICT because I don't think it's good for voters to be
able to thwart another candidate's CW status, by ranking candidate Z over him, without the
voter having to support Z in some sense during the cycle-breaker.
