It most certainly does.   The submission process was under an unsanctioned, and
not authorized process.  Just because the applicants believed the process was
valid (and I'll give them the benefit of the doubt here) doesn't mean that the
applications should have any standing in any future process.

There is no need to have a legal invalidation of a process that was not a part
of any governemnt process, and indeed was carried out without any authorization
or authority except that which IANA perceived and/or desired to have.
