Currently, the destiny of amd64 is in the hands of the release manager
and FTP masters, but that's not in their "duties" to add it. However,
should the GR pass, I hope the DPL would have the honesty to remove the
delegates who would fail to comply with it.

There seems to be several supporters of this position. You should
probably write an amendment asking for immediate inclusion in sid, but
letting the sarge decision in the hands of the release manager.
