What would the expected Approval Framework (AWE) behavior be, when a step is skipped for valid reason - but the next step's criteria is not met?

An example of this would be;

1. Approval Process is setup with 1 Stage, 1 Path and 3 Steps.
2. The three steps are for Analyst, Supervisor, and Manager.
3. Step criteria for each step
  Analyst – Amount > $0
  Supervisor – Amount > $1000
  Manager – Amount > $2000

When a voucher is created as Analyst with amount $50, and submitted for approval. The Analyst step is skipped since self-approval not allowed.

Should the Approval advance to next Step? Should the Approval Error?
