I think our general rule is to only vote 1-5 for films you've seen.  Personally, I'd prefer this since there are so many different ways a film can be made from a screenplay (and many screenplays, even if written or released by the director, often include details & dialogue that don't make it into the film).

 

Objectively and technically speaking, this is the first time the question has been brought up, so we've never actually made an explicit rule against it.  And since there would be no real way of enforcing such a rule, I'd leave this to each member's personal discretion.
