We discussed this in my gaming group as well and without much fight came to the conclusion that the stratagem command re-roll was intended to be an exception to the normal rolling rules, so it's use would allow you to re-roll a single dice of the two dice rolled for charging, or basilisk shots, or "melta" damage.
There are no further clarifications we could find on it (other than what you've posted above), however I expect if they intended to change the application of the stratagem the FAQ would have addressed the stratagem directly. Rules as written it's a little confusing (after the FAQ), rules as intended I think it's meant to only re-roll a single dice per use.

1: charging, roll 2d6 and add them together to get result
2: the faq/errata says "some rules allow you to reroll a dice roll, which means you get to roll some or all of the dice again. If the rule allows you to reroll a result that was made by using 2 or more dice added together, unless otherwise stated, you must roll all of those dice again.
3: the command point ability says: reroll any one dice.
The argument on one side is that the command point ability specifically states "any one dice"
The other argument is it doesn't specify that it ignores the rule. In other words it's not specifying at all.
They are both core rules I think, so I can't figure out if one supersedes the other based on that.
Can anyone clarify?
