BTW, this is a good discussion to have. Whilst this round of voting is
fresh in our minds, and the votes are easily analysable, I don't see a
problem with changing it *again* (if a consensus emerges that a change
may be necessary).

Personally, I'm happy with the result but a discussion on how we got
here, and how we can best explain the voting is a Good Thing[TM].

My own interpretation when voting (which is probably unscientific and
inaccurate; I don't spend all day working out voting models) was "if
choice #1 isn't going to get elected, who would I rather see next?"
*not* "I want all my vote to be split up and allocated in these
proportions to these candidates".
