But it should be archived and somehow accessible. I think that it
could be archived at least the same way -private is: You need to be a
Debian developer in order to read the archives, but _ANY_ DD can do
it. That way, if someone asks me, you or any other DD why was someone
rejected, or in case the process' transparency or James' honestity are
(again) put in doubt, any DD can retrieve the right answer.

...But it should be possible.
