I believe there is another way in which this vote could be considered "rigged": the "DFSG purist" vote is concentrated in a single option, while the "practical" vote is split in 5 options. This almost certainly prevents even a simple majority for any of the options allowing non-free firmware (and obviously ensures any "supermajority" will be unachievable), even if the actual number of supporters for these options is far larger than the number of "purists".
