Sounds like the Jeff committee, thinking that Bailiwick was going to go under completely (which is not true, with a show opening in a couple of weeks at Hamburger Mary's and the Pride Series at the Center on Halsted in July), decided to stretch the rules to give them one last bow before they folded.

And there seems to be something funny-buggers about the win Kris cited for the 1997 production of "Schooner" (that won a Jeff in 1998)--that was the first Equity production of "Schooner" (I can't remember if it was during Bailiwick's first or second attempt at union affiliation) after its first non-Equity production the previous year. Unless the rules have been changed since then, wouldn't the non-Equity production the previous year have made it ineligible, unless the change in affiliation magically wipes (or wiped) the slate clean?
