Not at all. The IAB has several times held open hearings on appeals, for

seem like reasonable grounds for a final appeal to the ISOC Board.

But if the appeal process and/or the recall process haven't been used, you 
simply can't assert a process failure.

Indeed. One swallow does not a summer make. It would be interesting to know
how many of the WGs have members who would assert such problems.
