I should have mentioned the Borda/Condorcet/Young school, which used a 
jury model instead of a spatial model. Its central result is the 
optimality of certain voting methods, including (in a limiting case) the 
Borda count. The constructive methodology is maximum likelihood 
estimation. Is this any more than a poor man's Bayesian decision theory?
