Key thing here is not to make it so precise than you can identify
individual votes. For example,  how sysop vs non-sysop votes were
distributed could be interesting. How votes from different projects
were distributed could be very interesting. If you make it possible to
combine the two, however, you find out exactly how the one admin on
some small project voted (or even multiple admins if they all voted
the same way). That is very very bad and very very easy to do if you
aren't careful.
