Probably. But what is the purpose of not being able to delegate to
the DPL then? I doubt it was added just to make sure that people
understand that delegation means sharing power with someone else.

I certainly value the fact that the DPL is an actor of Debian and already
has responsibilities. So my answer is still "no" even if the justification
may be something else.
