Only partially; http://www.aec.gov.au/_content/what/voting/votes.htm
indicates that counters are still meant to try to interpret your vote as
formal when possible, so if you miss a couple of numbers on the senate,
or repeat a number your vote'll still get counted as far as possible. But
yeah, Langer style votes are indeed explicitly informal.
