How about the following?
Driveline?
u-joints?
Half shafts?
Tail shaft?
R&P?
Come on man the MT is not an end all as you make it seem with your bias opinion... issue solved huh?
No if you had read my post I never implied the MT could handle it either, but at least you have the option to uprate the clutch. With a DCT you dont.

Not sure why you mention all these other components, its not really relevant here, but since you are on the subject any time you increase power substantially you should also address suspension and drive train... thats the proper way of doing it....more power with stock components leads to accelerated wear and failure.
