ENR 1.1.3 GENERAL FLIGHT PROCEDURES

4.2.4.1 A flight experiencing communication failure in IMC shall:

(f)...When practical, pilots should take account of visual landing aids and

(g) If communications failure occurs during an approach directed by radar, continue visually...

In answer to the original question, it seems that if communication failure occurs on short final, then to land without having received a clearance is the correct thing to do. (My bold)
