One comment that I can make right away is that FBC is almost surely
incompatible with CD + MMC.  ...just as FBC is incompatible with Condorcet.
So, in Green scenario or ideal majoritarian conditions, FBC would be too
costly. So, if the 2nd of Forest's criteria, too, is incompatible with the
criteria desirable for the Green scenario, that's favorable to a likening
of that criterion to FBC. Sure, the differences are great too..

Of course you have a point about the desirability of sacrificing one's
favorite in order to save the winner under sincere voting.

It could be argued that the thing being measured for is the _possibiity_ of
easily (without reversal) preserving the sincere winner, whether or not
it's always desirable, and that that's a matter of interest, just because
it _could_ be desirable.
