Ok, this is a proof.

But the change I suggested above would make a (theoretical) difference
nevertheless: if the default option could survive step 2 it could
become the winner in step 5.  If the default option cannot survive
step 2, it never could become the winner.

Do we intend that the default option actually can win the vote?
Am I correct that this only could happen via step 5?
