No, you're wrong.  The mechanism for achieving large-scale archive
changes isn't presently formally defined at all.  Informally, it appears
to be the exclusive domain of the Debian Archive Administrators (who,
the last time I checked, were not official delegates of the Debian
Project Leader[1]).

[1] The last time I asked, I got no answer.  It's possible the DPL made
    a delegation without announcing it to debian-devel-announce.
