Yes, but sorry if this question was unclear: What says SPI only listens to
the DPL, not the project?

For example, what is the relevance of the above copy-pasted block?
Does debian's invitation state that only the DPL is authorised to act,
or is the Secretary authorised to act by sending other decisions to SPI,
or is this an undefined thing that the spi-board are showing public
unity about, or something else?

If only the DPL is authorised to act in SPI's eyes, is that SPI interfering
in the decision-making of the project?  (by ignoring most of the processes)

In case anyone hasn't noticed, it seems very difficult to get anything
like a straight answer out of most of the current SPI board lately.  Try
it for yourself.  Fun for all the debian family.  Knock one over, win a
coconut and five tons of flax!
