I consider them different hats:

 - the DPL gets to make certain decisions on Debian's behalf as per
   the constitution

 - the Debian rep to SPI has to communicate all valid decisions from
   Debian to the SPI board

 - the Debian advisor to SPI should offer useful support and advice to
   the board to help the organisation be as successful as possible

The first is a privilege, the second is a responsibility, the third is a
bit of both. (I don't think "authoritative decisionmaker" is an accurate
description of any of those roles)
