I think that is a bit too creative for its own good. Equal "representation" requires a form of representation does it not? And the mention of a body named the "Senate" requires there be a Senate, no? That seems a mathematical, overly linguistic and artificial construction of the Constitution.

We might as well say that "equal protection of the law" is satisfied by providing all persons no protection of any law.
