That's great news for him, and I'm glad he and/or the Italian Fed went for the exception. (I wonder why Papa Boris didn't go for one for Shelepen.). I didn't see a "decisions by the council" announcement, but that doesn't mean it didn't happen.
I don't think the Olympic Charter is unclear: "Games" are the Olympic Games, and "Championships" are the ones designated by the official governing body of the sport. Senior B's aren't ISU events, let alone championships, and the ISU defines championships as Euros, 4C's, Worlds, and Jr. Worlds. Even GP/GPFs don't meet the definition of championships.
