At the moment, Wikidata bureaucrats do not have the technical capability to desysop or decrat when need be. Such actions are done by stewards which presents two problems:

  1. Logs are split
  2. Actions may not be done in a timely manner

This currently proves to be successful with other wikis and with the technical abilities available to local bureaucrats, such actions will be local in the logs and such actions will be able to be help accountable to local policies.

Also note this is a nice list of wikis that currently allow bureaucrats to desysop and decrat.
