As far as I'm concerned, there's no difference. In accepting the role
of project representative to SPI, I consider that to mean accurately
representing all decisions made in accordance with the constitution to
the SPI board, including those I might disagree with or not care about

I think the only case where it's come up is the legal opinion on including
Java in non-free, which eventually happened during linux.conf.au so
I completely forgot to do anything about it. Tsk. I'm not sure how to
summarise or followup on it while respecting/preserving attorney/client
privelege, but I've forwarded it on to John now anyway.

In any event, there are a number of other DDs on the SPI board whom I
have every reason to expect will ensure that Debian's resources are used
in accordance with Debian's constitution. Heck, the original drafter is
one of the board members at the moment...
