The camera does not prove that the ballot was actually cast, rather
than merely printed. A voter who wished to avoid complying with
vote-coercion/buying, but keep her kneecaps intact, can defeat the
attack. Specifically, photograph an uncast ballot, send it to
bad-guys, either spoil it with poll-worker or simply do not cast it.

In contrast, a voter has no similar recourse for the
ballot-ID-memorization attack.

There is an end to this line of inquiry... it just may not occur at the
same place as the beginning of the inquiry.
