He seems to think he does. At least, he has authority to stop abuse of the
mailing lists if he thinks it's happening.

I doubt it would come to that. On the other hand, it seems like a fork is
what is really necessary here.
Since there's no transparency here, we can only speculate about what has
transpired between Sven, the rest of the d-i team, and the DPL and/or his
delegate. Do you know for a fact that a majority of the team members
are likely to quit, or have threatened to quit, if AJ (or a GR) restores
Sven's commit access?
