First of all, Rashi *is* peshuto shel mikra.  And in this case Rashi's 
source is directly from the Sifri.  I think that's more authoritative 
than the Ramban's sources.

But why did you think I was referring to Rashi in the first place?  I 
was referring to the *halacha pesukah* as laid out by the Rambam.  I 
think that as a statement of what TSBP says about this pasuk, that 
carries the day.
