Is this essentially equivalent to the normal statement of FBC? Or is it
meaningfully stronger in some way? (Obviously, it's "weaker" because it
doesn't talk about the situation where the only way to make A win is to
vote nobody at the top at all; but that's a silly case that will never
matter for a real voting system.)
