IRNR doesn't satisfy them. Consider that if you give fewer candidates the bottom rating,
you create more situations where higher-rated candidates would see a score reduction in
some round, due to rescaling. And it's not possible to say that only certain candidates
will ultimately be helped or hurt by this.

Speaking of the LNHs, does IRNR pass them? My first guess would be so, 
but perhaps the change from Plurality to Range for the exclusion 
mechanism changes things?
