Yes, but my point was that even on mobile phones or PDA you need to
design properly the vote mechanism (store keys, interact with user, do
proper crypto, meaningful random number generator, etc.). So all the
time invested in designing secure classical voting machines should be
reused by recording how and more importantly why (the rationale) this is
done that way.

And by the way, we would be very happy if entities used demexp for their
decision making procedures. :)
