DIAS Versailles?

How exactly does a draw work in a Versailles game that is DIAS? Does this mean that everyone is always in the draw since no one is ever considered eliminated only dormant? Or does the system automatically kick out people that have neither power active from a vote?

To participate in any draw a player must have at least one active power. In Versailles this may be either the major or minor power.

In the Status window all minor powers (active or inactive) can be selected but only active major powers. Presumably this is to conceal the link between any inactive major and its minor. If a minor becomes inactive it can still be selected as part of the draw proposal but it will have no effect.

As a side-note, the treatment of major and minor powers is inconsistent. All powers should be selectable, whether major or minor, active or inactive. The draw algorithm is obviously perfectly capable to ignore any inactive powers.
