John was an elder, so his role had rapidly deteriorating authority in the mid to late 80's, which is his standing during those infamous Anaheim meetings.

The matter of deputy authority, really only defines the one at the top, who in turn "deputizes" others. This is not some teaching in a book, but how it works in practice. Those who "voice concerns" then are "de-deputized" and have their "badges revoked" as was the case of JI and TC.
