Note that our current constitution does not require this for DPL votes.
Do you think this is important enough to require in the constitution?
I'm guessing yes since you bring it up, but I want to ask explicitly.

Same question for this.

Would you be willing to propose a merge request for these two properties
if you think it is important that we require them in the constitution?

Do people like Pierre-Elliott who favor cryptographic approaches have
comments on these two properties?
I want to make sure that if we're ruling out some anonymous voting
system someone favors, we do so explicitly.
