The board has total freedom to reject the license, and they should. 
Meanwhile, I am concerned that it looks as if it is your _personal_ 
action if you dally in psychoanalysis of the submitter rather than the 
submission while waiting for that to happen. Do the dignified thing and 
just get the board to say no, without further conversation.
