How's this for a definition:
If X disagrees with Y's unblock, then Y has wheel warred. If X
reinstates the block, then X has wheel warred too.
This covers the situation where X makes a mistake and Y fixes it - X
agrees with the mistake, and no damage is caused. If Y fears that X
may accuse him of wheel warring, he shouldn't be undoing X's actions.
(or should be prepared for the consequences)
I would argue that X has the prerogative to reblock here, since Y
wheel-warred (something that should not have happened) and after
something that should not have happened, it's generally acceptable to
reinstate the status quo ante.
But X's block is clearly dissputed. Thus the status quo is no block.
Wikipedia defults to doing nothing.
