Didn't you mean z: C>A?    ...with the C-preferrers ranking sincerely,
rather than burying A?

...though C would be the voted CW either way. But  z: C>A is sincere, and,
as you said, it's part of the equilibrium ballot-set that's closest to the
sincere preferences.

No one has a majoriiy, and the A-preferrers are the voters in best position
to attempt offensive strategy, if anyone can, because they're the biggest
faction, and because their candidate is 2nd choice of the CW's faction.
