(2) "Unanimous settlement agreement" means an agreement that is entered into by all parties to the proceeding or an agreement that is not opposed by any party that did not enter into the agreement.
(3) "Nonunanimous settlement agreement" means an agreement that is entered into by fewer than all parties to the proceeding and is opposed by one or more parties.
