Absolutely. If teams make technical decisions that affect other
developers, they should be willing to discuss why those decisions have
been made. If they fail to do so, then it should be the DPL's
responsibility to ensure that that information is passed on. 

Debian is run by its developers - the DPL exists in order to ensure that
the developers are able to make appropriate decisions, not to make those
decisions himself.
