Right. My take, however, is that they are not technical issues and are
therefore not suited for the technical committee; since the body with
authority over this interpretation already made a decision, the only way
to overrule would seem to be a GR.

No, I'm not willing to propose such a GR, because I do not think that
overruling this decision is required.

Fun will now commence
