Using zip tie on V5 smart motor

Hello:

I wonder: if the team took out the four V5 motor screws and use zip ties to connect the motor to the motor cap, acting as a hot swap in case the motor fail for easy change, does that against rule R22 on the Change up Manual? Is that illegal?

To my understanding, that was recently banned in the manual revision.
