I'll just mention that this was also my personal understanding after reading 
the intro web page for referring a matter to the tech-ctte [before I submitted 
the summary], based on the sentence "The committee is only empowered to make 
technical decisions" in the third bullet point after the numbered list.  
Empowered means having official authority.  List item 5 states concerning an 
agreement or compromise that "If it happens, the committee need not make a 
formal decision", so it also doesn't /require/ the TC to make a decision on 
its own, assuming the solution seems acceptable to everyone including the TC.
