Deluxe MDDA is just MDDA with a separate Approval cutoff, an opportunity for
the voter to indicate his/her lowest approved ranking. That means that one
can approve some, but not all, candidates, while ranking all of the
candidates. Obviously deluxe MDDA receives more information from voters.
So the definition would say:
1. A candidate is disqualified if another candidate is ranked over him/her
by a majority of the voters.
(Unless that rule would disqualifly all of the candidates, in which case
no one is disqualified)
2. The winner is the un-disqualified candidate who is approved by the most
voters, by being at or above their least approved rank position.

in the form of an Approval cutoff.
Both MDDA versions meet FBC, SFC, and SDSC. Deluxe MDDA's deluxeness isn't
needed, and for a first proposal, I suggest ordinary MDDA, defined in my
