Let it be known that I only edit warred so the issue would be
discussed, since attempts to resolve it in other ways had failed. Some
time ago I was essentially told that the DWG will only intervene if
there's an ongoing edit war, and this seems to be anecdotal evidence
of that. If there were more constructive ways to escalate it to this
level, I would have pursued them instead.
