The DPL team idea confuses me a little. The DPL can already delegate
tasks to other members of the project, so I'm unconvinced by the
argument that it's impossible for a single DPL to have time to do
everything. I like the idea of power being distributed to more people,
but I think the right answer is for this power to be distributed as
necessary to whoever is most appropriate at the time.

No. The DPL's team should be made up of everyone involved in the
project, not a subset of it. There should be no issues that can't be
discussed with everyone. How does the creation of a small team increase
Debian's transparency? Why would their meetings be private? What real
benefits does having this team bring to the project?
