No. A GR can override any decision made by the DPL, a delegate or the
technical committee. A GR can not override a decision made by an
individual developer or a team of developers.
I guess you could argue that svn.debian.org is adminned by a delegate of
the DPL, and a GR could force them to restore Sven's commit access. But
the d-i team could then move their svn archive somewhere else and refuse
to provide Sven with commit access.
(This ia documented in section 4.1 of the constitution)
