I don't think all the assumptions in Warren's BR figures are perfect 
either. It came up previously that the figures for strategic plurality 
assume that everyone votes for one of two candidates, but that these 
candidates are randomly picked from the set of all candidates regarding 
their utility. You might think that it is a valid assumption that the top 
two candidates are no better than average among all the candidates, but if 
publicity of BR figures increased and they were used in debates to a wider 
audience, people will look at the assumptions made, and I don't think 
people will accept that assumption.
