It's not "or", it's "and". I want the explanation of the proponent and the
point of view of seconders. They might second not because they agree but
because they want to see the option on the ballot. Or they might prefer
something else but be satisfied with this as a compromise.

Except I don't understand why the statutory people you listed are more
important than others (except maybe the DPL).

We're not speaking of a decision of the leader, but of a case of GR.
Suppose someone want to override the decision that I took of refusing
to grant an Alioth project and managed to start a GR.

It seems to me that I'm in the situation that you described: "it might be
that their decisions are being overruled or preempted"

Might be.
