That's almost the opposite of my understanding: SPI refers to projects
and their decision-making as a whole, not particular people in them.

SPI says the following on project management:

Each Project has its own formal or informal internal structure and
procedures. SPI will not interfere in the internal decision making
of Projects, unless this is requested by the Project or its rules and
procedures. [+2 more paragraphs]

What says SPI only listens to the DPL, not the project?  AIUI, the DPL
is appointed as an adviser to SPI's board, not a veto.
