Is Inerrancy an Issue Again in Synod?

I recently got wind of an issue in the PSW (Pacific Southwest) district where the district's committee on constitutions was apparently prohibiting congregations from using words such as "inerrant," "inspired," or "revealed" in the confessional subscription portion of their constitutions. This issue carried over into their convention, and then was passed on to the CCM of Synod by their president for an opinion. The CCM, it seems, does not take issue with this. Or did I read it wrong? Why would a district's constitutional committee be encouraging congregations to avoid such time-honored descriptions of our belief regarding Holy Scripture?

You can read about the situation and see the pertinent documents here at the Concord site.
