This is a completely wrong understanding. In your example, the TC is
able to determine the content of policy as well as to ask for
particular fixes to packages, and if the TC thinks that policy is
wrong or inapplicable or whatever it will decide what it thinks is
Debian does not have the separation of powers you describe.
