You appear to be making the same mistake as Manoj did, which I noted in 
a message to debian-devel.

Under the proposed system (Manoj's), B is dropped.  This leaves:
450x DA
 45x AD

The default option beats A and wins.

An option which is *beaten* by the default option *cannot* win unless 
both it and the Default Option are in the Smith set.  Construct your 
examples better.  Both of you!
