DPL may not delegate to him/herself.  Constitution s5.1.1 para 2:
"The Leader may define an area of ongoing responsibility or a specific 
decision and hand it over to another Developer or to the Technical 
Committee."                  ^^^^^^^

Does anything contradict that?  Are people posting without looking?

Even if the DPL can change policy as a result of other powers (urgency 
or whatever, but I don't see why), it should still be done in a way 
"consistent with the consensus of the opinions of the Developers" and 
"avoid overemphasizing their own point of view".  Yeah, right(!)

Hope that explains,
