In most cases, I'd say yes, but in that first stoppage (at about 1:57 in the video), the case was jammed so low in the weapon that it might well have interfered with inserting a new fully-loaded magazine. If you were in the middle of a tactical reload (partially empty magazine being removed from the weapon during a break in the action, to be immediately replaced with a fully loaded one), and had to engage a target with the round remaining in the chamber before the new mag was seated, it could be a factor.

Maybe I'll suggest a stage for the local IDPA match where a pop-up target is activated during a tac reload, and must be immediately engaged with the chambered round, PRIOR to completing the reload. It might be interesting to see how common this is with a cross-section of shooters and weapons, and how well they would deal with it if not prepped for the possibility ahead of time...
