That would be my assumption, yes. I'm in the middle of a huge project right now and haven't had time to check in with the folks I know at Disney or LucasFilm. But based on the past, the writers were given specifics of what they could or could not do or write for the novels.
As I mentioned earlier, they're less than six months from principle photography, which means that the Americans involved in the film (Abrams, Arndt, Kennedy, etc.) will be making plans to move to England soon. With that in mind, the script must be close to being finalized and the general outline is definitely set in stone.
