Wikipedia editors require notability. Can you point to a peer-reviewed
academic article or two that establishes Bottom-Two-Runoff IRV as notable?
I'm not necessarily offering to do the edit because I already push the
Wikipedia boundaries in other ways that I think are more important.
Yet I think references would help justify whoever does have time to do
Also what would help is to add to the Electowiki article a section that
lists the important criteria. And asking here about which criteria you
aren't sure of would make it easier for whoever can add the table entry.

But I am not qualified to get the facts and authoritatively evaluate each criterion and say "yea" or "nay" to it.
