There are nine other principles, you know. "Dumb luck" goes quite well with "immediacy" for example. The wonderful thing about the ten principles is that it's impossible to have them all completely. And the lottery reminds us that we are not in control, which is one of the things that the burn writes even larger...
Good points and I totally agree with you.
I guess my point is that no single system is totally fair, perfect, or conforming to all 10 principles. An auction probably has as many upsides and downsides as the lottery.
In the end, I still believe that a non-transferable, ID-checked ticket attached to a name is the best system of all. Hopefully they'll be able to pull that off next year or at some other point in the future.
