Only if you assume that the power dissipation is independent from temperature. This is most often the case in electronics, but think of a thermostat, perhaps for an expo converter. It will try to keep the temperature constant by varying the power dissipation.

Here's a major flaw in EN 61010, but that's completely off-topic...
