Hmm.. I think you're right.
A doesn't directly defeat C -- it only transitively defeats C through B,
and while C does defeat A, B defeats C at the same strength. So there's
no reason to consider the B's defeat of C as having any more or less
importance than C's defeat of A.
I retract my statement that an option with no propositions doesn't belong
in the Schwartz set.
Instead: an option can't be eliminated from the schwartz set after all
propositions involving that option have been eliminated.
But I need to think a bit more about how I define ties.
