I believe he is taking the subjunctive as hortatory. He mistates himself 
since there is no 1st plural imperative form per se. Admittedly, he states 
in his commentary that this is a possibility (which I believe is wrong), but 
I think he is mistating himself. Also, Wright does believe it should be 
understood as indicative (Romans, 515).

He points to Moo (Romans, 295-6) as support for the imperatival reading, but 
Moo takes it as a hortatory subjunctive as well.
