[EM] Obvious Approval advantages. SODA. Approval-Runoff.

Hi Mike,
I don't think Approval-Runoff can get off the ground since it's too
apparent that a party could nominate two candidates (signaling that one
is just a pawn to aid the other) and try to win by grabbing both of the
finalist positions. If this happened regularly it would be just an 
expensive version of FPP.
SODA actually does allow you to not delegate via checking a box. But
a version that required delegation might be interesting because it
wouldn't require an "approval plus checkbox" ballot, it would just need
a vote-for-one ballot.
