For issue 1, I think it's clear that you're asking the CTTE to overrule a
maintainer, which falls within our jurisdiction.

For issue 2, I believe this is a question for debian-installer and the
corresponding maintenance team.  Are you asking us to overrule a
maintainer decision there?  If so, could you provide a pointer to the
specific decision you're asking to overrule?  Or, if you're asking for us
to do something else, like issue technical advice, could you point at the
discussions you've had with the debian-installer team about this already?

The default would be to defer to the debian-installer team and let them
follow their normal decision-making processes, so for this to be a TC
issue, I think we need some sign that process has failed in some way
before 2 becomes actionable for us.
