Woodall's mono-add-top criterion says that adding ballots,
each with candidate A strictly preferred to every other candidate,
must not change the winner from candidate A to some other candidate.

To the best of my knowledge, there is no election method that
has been proven to satisfy the Smith criterion and mono-add-top.
