I highly doubt BMW would design the DSG tranny to disengage when coasting. They don't even do that in their automatic transmissions, conversly most GM auto transmissions do allow the engine to drop to idle when coasting (a feature I hate). I personnal want the transmission to stay engaged when coasting to take advantage of engine braking the same way it does in the current SMG tranny.
