I can ask about giving away DV and DCD, but IMHO, I would much rather spend
some time on thinking through if there is a better way to implement those
two features.  They have lots of issues.  As Mike said, DV is tied to a
framework version.  DCD is highly inefficient in most cases because it is
trying to handle corner cases in a single implementation.
