To the best of my knowledge, no.

And that's precisely why we would like a global ban policy implemented. We
would prefer an established, community-monitored process that we can turn
to when at all possible (and make no mistake, in this case it was needed; I
wish we could give all the specifics, but for privacy reasons, we just
can't).  Because we didn't have that, we had to break new ground with the
Office actions policy.  I hope we never have to use that again.
