Xenophon’s Senate voting reform proposals

http://www.theaustralian.com.au/opinion/columnists/xenophon-gives-the-main-parties-a-senate-solution/story-fnmnl1y0-1227556743692 If you vote above the line must vote for 3 groups. Below the line 12. Is an improvement on current system. Would prefer to abolish above the line voting because it is lazy voting in a preferential system and will void all deals done amongst all parties. However if there are 150 candidates on the ballot a valid vote should be if a third are numbered beyond that figure the votes are exhausted anyway.
