Hmmm, but the "mandatory safety stop" obligation disappears just like
regular deco stops from Suunto DCs before you reach the "safety stop" depth
when ascending very slowly during the end of the dive.
This I interpret such that to the Suunto, it is just an ordinary deco stop,
supporting the interpretation by Subsurface.
(Some other DCs insist on even the most ridiculous safety stops - as in:
stop at -5m after decompressing at -3m. This is luckily not the case with Suunto.)
