Not really.
Under the current bylaws, nothing prevents the Board from doing what they
want with a recommandation, with the justification that they reject it
because they think that it is not in the best interest of the Corporation
(see VI.2.e.1 below)

	      (1) furthers the purposes of, and is in the best interest of,

According to my reading, the current bylaws only set a frame of reference
for the political context in which the recommendations will be
accepted/rejected, but do not limit the real power of the Board.
