And all this talk about heel-toe. please, heel-toe shifting merely allows you to rev match (imperfectly I might add unless you're a professional driver) which DCT does a million times over with perfect execution, further allowing you to focus on more important things like braking, turn-in and exit.

Sorry, I just love throwing wood on the fire.
Well said.

Errr, no. In Auto/Program mode, there's no way you'll be able to control DSLR's exposure levels the way one can with manual mode; whereas, no similar analogy exists in 6MT-vs-DCT situation...
