Additive Approval Voting is a reasonable name, but ... it misses the 
powerful and real associations with runoff voting, and we may find 
that the most powerful and ready application of the method is *in an 
existing runoff system.*

We could also call it "Runoff Approval Voting" to dump the "instant," 
which was a false promise. RAV. or ARV.
