No, I am not.  I don't have an informed opinion on whether Hector should or
shouldn't be made part of DSA; I was only responding to Joerg's
characterization of the delegation process, which implied that the DPL is a
figurehead who didn't need to be consulted before changes were made to
delegated teams.  I.e., Joerg's description is problematic not for how it
handles the controversial cases, but for how it handles the
non-controversial ones.
