We should ask the constitution writers (Ian Jackson?) to know their
But, as far as I interpret it, it is a way to let his hands clear to :
- do his administrative and technical DPL tasks;
- be free from conflicts of interests;
- represent every single DD or team;
- be impartial and objective so as to mediate correctly.
(all these four are closely related to each other)
This is also generally done in political systems: one cannot be
President and Mayor at the same time.
Well, the only problem I see is the loss of knowledge in teams where the
DPL was involved. But this should not be a huge issue because assistants
can be promoted in teams and the old DPL can be delegated again by the
new one. Otherwise, it is more a problem of knowledge management.
