For what it's worth, I'm not keen on further centralization of powers in
the DPL. I understand that others (e.g. Sam) might see this a reasonable
tradeoff for the ability to more easily update the role and powers of
the TC, but I think it creates a worse problem than it fixes. For the
avoidance of doubt, this is not intended as a comment on the conduct or
judgement of any current or previous DPL.
