Do I understand right if I say that the removal of the DTP concept from
the BRs would not stop CAs getting third parties to perform parts of the
validation process; it would simply mean that it was required that those
third parties were included in the scope of the CA's audit? (And that if
the CA saw practical problems with that, they would have to not delegate
that function to that entity.)

So then domain validation could be delegated, but would have to be
properly audited in the audit which the root stores get to see?
