I don't believe that it's acceptable for an otherwise beaten option to
win due the the otherwise winning option being discarded due to a quorum
requirement, as John suggests might happen.

I also don't believe that it's acceptable to break the Monotonicity Criterion.

If a winning option would be discarded due to quorum requirements, then
I think the vote should probably be considered void.

Sorry I don't have time to make much more of a contribution than this.
