Indeed. (The original CP was also about incorrect synonyms.) However, 
the only clarification needed is, I believe, that not only will 'index, 
up, first, last' be removed, but also the synonyms (per the definition 
in the disputed draft) of either of those rel keywords.

The CP which the Decision prefers suggests to remove those keywords 
which, according to the original CP, have - or are - incorrect 
synonyms.  And in addition, the preferred CP also suggest to remove 
'last' and 'up'.  Thus it seems like the logical conclusion is that the 
Decision, in addition to "index, up, first, last", requires the 
following synonyms to be removed as well:

  Rel-value: Should be removed because
  ---------: -------------------------
   contents: in the disputed draft it's a synonym of 'index'
        toc: in the disputed draft it's a synonym of 'index' 
        top: in the disputed draft it's a synonym of 'index'
      start: in the disputed draft it's a synonym of 'first'
      begin: in the disputed draft it's a synonym of 'first'
        end: in the disputed draft it's a synonym of 'last'

Do the chairs agree?
