"The activism role belongs in SPI, and Debian's role is to be a
member software project of SPI."

That's a statement, not discussion. Strangely enough, I do find it
insulting to be told what Debian's role is by somebody outside the
project. I suspect you'd be somewhat upset if I said "Bruce's role is to
sit in the corner and say nothing".

So either there'd be a contrived email discussion that would be
carefully formatted to fit article 6 (making any actual discussion
horribly awkward), or you'd have to change the by-laws. Realistically,
the second of these is your only real option.
