Question about Quorum

I am testing some scenarios with our InnoDB Cluster.
Our environment is a 3 node InnoDB Cluster based on version 8.0.32.

All works well - we implemented MySQL Router on application side, connection works like a charm.

I now wanted to test some failure scenarios and did not get the result I excpected. I turned off two out of three machines hosting the InnoDB instances.

As excpected MySQL Router & the Error Log of MySQL reported two failed nodes.
cluster.status() reported status "MISSING".

If 2 out of 3 members are offline/missing I assumed a complete cluster outage due to quorum loss. But... the cluster remains online with a single r/w instance and I am able to place transactions inside of this single instance.

Why the InnoDB cluster is not going down due to quorum loss?

Many regards
