to be clear I'd say yes & no  :-)

no - its not written into 2026
yes - if someone appeals such a thing it would be really bad 
	if the IESG &/or IAB were to rule it out of order rather than
	address the issue

but also - yes
	if the AD says that and the WG specifically has consensus
	a different way that it would be a process violation to
	override the WG consensus
this might sound counter to what I posted earlier today but if
a AD/IESG pushback to a WG for a security or danger-to-the-net
issue can not get WG consus to fix then we are in a pile of problem
