Agreed.

Though if we want to understand more about how changes in voting
systems would affect the results, it would be even more helpful to
have an anonymized list of ballots (so that we have the information
about which candidates were voted for *together*).  I'm not sure if
making that available would be considered to make the data too
de-anonymizable?
