I just wrote up a draft based on this concept, but it's got a rather
trivial "strategy", which makes the whole draft pointless.

If A has a supermajority requirement, introduce option B which does not
have a supermajority requirement but does meet quorum.

By comparison, the strategy you proposed for supermajority scaling is
almost useless.  I'm going to rewrite using scaling, since that seems
to be the best compromise for stability.
