[EM] Participation Criteria and Bucklin - perhaps they *can* work together after all?

OK, let's assume that as defined, Bucklin fails Participation. 


Let me specify a new criteria, which already either has its own name that I
do not know, or which I can call Prime Participation:


"Adding one or more ballots that vote X as a highest preference should never
change the winner from X to Y"


In other words, expressing a first place/greatest magnitude preference for
X, if X was already winning, cannot make X not win.


This may be another one so basic that few or maybe no real voting systems
fail it?
