My best take on the questions:

For this discussion your basically arbitrators.  Investigate what is
involved with arbitration, what do they require and how do they manage
these issues.

1) When is "being difficult" transitioning into an edit war that DWG has
dealt with? Is this just an edit war where one person is trying to resolve
it with discussion instead of continual reverts and edits?
2) The DWG needs a set of guidelines for it and the mappers that is
controlled by DWG (not a general use WIKI anyone can edit) that they can
point to for self resolution, or use if the DWG must take action on it's
3) It will happen because you will not have all the facts all the time.
Handle those situations gracefully.
