I agree that marking "ineligible" is not the right method. The normal
approach is scoring down and/or unassigning the mentor.

Note though that this scoring down/unassigning *has* to be done by the
organisation who gives the student up. The student can't make the
selection himself. The student can be included in the discussion, but
ultimately the yielding organisation has to make sure he is no longer
among the top-ranked proposals, or the conflict won't be resolved. The
duplicate resolution meeting is the very latest occasion to do this --
but if the situation is clear beforehand, it should be done earlier.

Of course, if the other organisation decides that they don't want the
student after all, they should indicate this in time, so the student can
be ranked up again...
