I think this is not inherently true. Since all options are compared two by
two one of them could theorically defeat all the others but fail to defeat 
the default one by the quorum requirement, while at the same time all the
others can defeat the default one with the necessary quorum margin...
This is, of course, a quite borderline case, but it indeed exists.
