Probably not, but who would hold them to the constitution?
Or would the constitution be rewritten to match DPL actions
after they've been actively working against its rules?

I agree that the delay is a pain when things are done right,
but I feel there should be some opportunity for public review
before a fanfare and donations start going to the new body.

Not necessarily.  Evil DPL would only need to know that there is
a substantial donation about to arrive that could be directed to 
a recommended irresponsible body.  For example, if they'd just
been asked where a donation should go.

This transfer of power to the DPL from the DPL+SPI together still
looks unnecessary, a bit ugly and would make donations to debian
more vulnerable.
