I think nothing stops anyone from voting for all six of Novell
employees (there's no rule against it, AFAIK).  They cannot all be
elected, but I don't see how this system of voting is worse for them
(not taking the "4-rule" into account) than any other system (which
would be used along with the "4-rule").  If they're all "popular"
candidates, they'll end up in a battle between themselves, using any
of the systems.  If some of them are not "popular", they won't be
elected no matter what :-)
