That is what we have more or less done since (even in chapels that don't have a clerk's desk) but I'd still feel more comfortable seeing something in writing.
Stakes I have served in have received directives (like "Sacrament meeting invocation must be said by a Melchizedek Priesthood holder") from General Authorities and even one Apostle during their visits. These directives were not related to doctrine and were discontinued after a call from the Stake President to CHQ.
If it's not in the CHI, then it's probably not an official policy, unless the Stake Presidency says it is.
