No it is not just commonwealth, it is British soil.
Canada and Australia are commonwealth for comparison.
Gibraltar has never really been in any question, its as British as the street outside of my window. We will never give it up, it plays a vital role strategically. We also used it as a missile defense within the rock during WW2. The people there love the situation.
Falklands, well I personally don't know a lot about it, in my eyes if the people who live there, are in power there - society in general. If they want to remain part of Britain then sobeit.
Also this is real by the way, a Falkland news paper image on their website, its of the Argentinean leader
Yes we have established that, clearly this debate is more than just what soil it is. Its more than just ownership of the land.
But as you said, Gibraltar is as British as the street outside your window; at least for as long as the Falklanders are there, so are the islands. How the Argies plan to get around that should be amusing, since they will need to either wipe them out or forcibly relocate them before they can even begin to call the islands theirs.
I would not put either of those past them.
