Yes, and some members of that Council have different opinions.

Be that as it may, though:

>>documenting it.

The thing about an unsealing is that it isn't, in itself, some kind of celestial crime. The seals are there to prevent accidental damage to the mortal world from the gods' unchecked power. Breaking one is a serious matter, but not necessarily a disciplinary one. The first thing they look at when that happens is whether there was accidental damage to the mortal world. If there wasn't, step two is to see whether there was deliberate damage to the mortal world. Step three, if the answer to step two was "yes", would be to decide whether it was justified.

In this case, there wasn't any significant celestially-inflicted damage to the fabric of Midgard at all, accidental or otherwise, so... there's not really anything further to investigate. Think of it as a little bit like a naval court-martial. Those aren't always disciplinary actions; sometimes (as in the sinkings of ships by enemy action in wartime) they're just about getting what happened on paper.
