Which raises the question, Who is?  It seems pretty unlikely that
anyone on staff at the Commission was involved in the negotiations, so
I suspect they are very much operating on autopilot, and would be
disinclined to authorize anything that might require a novel
interpretation of any of the agreements.

(FWIW, Bermuda never signed on to any of the newer agreements, so WPTR
still protects ZNS1 under the old NARBA rules for class I-B stations.)
