Ah, but you stopped short in your reading of 131. "he cannot have an
increase" is followed by "worlds without end." To me, this not suggest
forever, but rather a very long time, seemingly to the mortal mind an
eternity. But then, the term "Eternal" has an interesting definition in
D&C 19, where it is one of God's names. So even if the scriptures said
that a person was "eternally damned", it does not necessarily mean
forever, but rather is damned by God.
Aren't word definitions interesting?  ;-)

But in D&C 131, it says over in verse 4, referencing those who do not 
enter into the new and everlasting covenant of marriage, "He may enter 
into the other [meaning one of the lower heavens or degrees], but that 
is the end of his kingdom: *he cannot have an increase*."  That strongly 
suggests to me an inability to progress, or at a very minimum, the 
inability to have infinite might or dominion.  This is despite the fact 
that we're still speaking of the celestial heavens--not of the 
terrestial or telestial worlds.
