BMW can design a "DSG" type gearbox any way they like, but when we talk of DSG, we talk about it in it's current design as we know it.
And sure SMG kicks down to a lower gear....if you're in auto mode. If you're in manual mode however, you can stomp on the gas and remain in the current gear. You've driven a SMG car, yes?
