RFD: informal proposal

This is an informal request for discussion about how to handle quorum
and supermajority requirements.

Quorum is a ballot requirement -- all options on the ballot must have
the same quorum requirement.

However, supermajority is an option requirement -- different options
might have different supermajority requirements.

So.. how does this sound:

Group options according to their supermajority requirements -- all
options with the same supermajority requirement go in the same group.

Use CpSSD to pick a winning candidate from within each group.

Use CpSSD with scaled preferences to pick a winner from the set of
winning candidates.

Default the election if the picked winner didn't meet quorum.

Does anyone see any significant strategies for inconsistency with this
kind of mechanism?
