The Chairs understand that there was some confusion amongst WG members about
the "finality" of a WG decision arrived thru the "amicable resolution" route. 
The Chairs are willing to re-open ISSUE-134 because of this confusion.  But the
Chairs want to change the DP to ensure that this is the last case where this
exception is applied.
