I'd personally replace the rest with something like:

  5. Debian may name an advisor to the board, who will have access to
     the board private discussion, but (unless that person is already a
     member of the board) shall not have any vote on the board.

  6. Debian will appoint a project representative to SPI, who shall
     communicate decisions made by the project to the board, and serve
     as a single point of contact for the board to communicate with
     the project.

  7. The SPI board recognises that both those roles have been traditionally
     filled by the Debian Project Leader, and are currently held by Anthony

  8. The SPI board recognises the Debian Constitution as the ultimate
     authority by which the roles will be appointed, and by which
     decisions are made by the Debian project.
