Motion for Reconsideration After Final Award - What are your thoughts?

Should institutional rules include a limited provision for the parties to file a motion for reconsideration after the issuance of the Final Award? If so, on what grounds would such a motion be entertained? For example, a need to correct a clear error of fact (i.e., the arbitrator/panel having (inadvertently) misread/misconstrued a piece of evidence), an intervening change in controlling law, or the emergence of new evidence not previously available?

Please provide your thoughts/comments below.
