Is it though?  In the general case.
With one instance mis-behaving, in an unknown state and potentially
doing anything, I would not have thought this would be a good time to
promote another instance.

In any case, the 'block' applies to the whole resource, not just the
failed instance.

Even if I wanted to, I don't think we could change the behaviour in this case.
All instances that need to be demoted or stopped must be, before any
other instances can be started or promoted.
Bypassing that premise would probably cause the implementation to fall
apart :-)
