15. The motivation for IRV makes a lot of sense to me.
And I long favored it. Elegantly administered, with all voters capable of fully participating, it seemed ideal. Then I began to study election management systems.

Butterfly ballots are the tip of the iceberg. Auditing of an IRV election? Unlikely. To the masses (including election officials), despite the good intention, it'll be like Fizzbin.
