No. At this stage, the Director issued a decision.

This is required by our Process:
[[
If there was any dissent in Advisory Committee reviews, the Director 
must publish the substantive content of the dissent to W3C and the 
general public, and must formally address the comment at least 14 days 
before publication as a W3C Recommendation.
]]

Our Process also indicates:
[[
Advisory Committee representatives may initiate an Advisory Committee 
Appeal of the W3C decision
]]
https://www.w3.org/2017/Process-20170301/#rec-publication

This then points to section 7.2 Appeal by Advisory Committee 
Representatives:
