That is, have their proceedings be open for review by developers

The matter of law is probably straightforward, but I'm pretty sure that
Debian's decision making process doesn't have to work in a way that some
reasonably unknown committee mumbles something in private and then presents
the solution as a done deal to the developers, or even just the DPL.
I'm probably reading too much into what you wrote, mako, as your comments
seemed to have been written somewhat hastily so we can probably assume you
were unintentionally terse. However, a proper explanation would still be
preferable to having to guess what is going on.
