More than that, the OSI never AFAIK takes official action to declare a
license not OSD-compliant. Acceptance implies OSD-compliance, in the
judgment of the board (backstopped, if necessary, by the judgment of
a judge). But rejection implies nothing.

Not at all. You decide on OSI certification and that's it.
