Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

"WA alters the mandatory date of exit from 29 March 2019"

I think you are mistaken. The withdrawal agreement provides for a 21 Month transition or implementation period after Brexit day during which the UK continues to enjoy some of the benefits and obligations of membership but is no longer actually formally a member. It will no longer have representatives in the EP or the Council or have any decision making rights.

Quite separately the European Council might, by unanimous consent, agree to an extension of the A.50 notice period beyond 29th. March but that is not part of the Withdrawal Agreement which only needs to be approved by weighted majority vote on the Council and by the EP.
