Allowing organizations under common control to have multiple votes, 
depending on the level of independence reported by the organizations 
themselves, would seem to be a challenging equation to balance.

If A is a parent of B and C, and B and C are able to vote, then A wields 
twice the influence of other voters.

I don't see how that can be negated.
