There is no "rest of the project"! The d-i team is, for all intents
and purposes, an _independent_ project whose product _happens_ to be
uesd by Debian. Debian actually has no more say in the actions or
make-up of the d-i team than they do in the actions or make-up of the
kernel devs or X.org.
The most that Debian could do is force a fork, and if a fork is all
that's desired, Sven can set one up on his own! He doesn't need a GR
to force a fork!

Because it was the d-i project that decided to take action, not the
Debian project. The d-i project controls his SVN access; the Debian
project controls the mailing lists. The d-i project cannot "clip" his
access to Debian lists, and the Debian project cannot add or remove
his d-i commit access.
