Fascinating discussion. Two points:

Don't know about the other systems Mike refers to but iQ doesn't do any 
'mass file copying' to ready material for playout.  It just plays the 
material in the order it is on the timeline - the disk sub-system is fast 
enough to cope.

Clearly DI is many things to many people.  For many of the people I talk to 
DI is an opportunity to make some money in post by either doing stuff for 
new customers or doing more stuff for existing customers (hey a few posts 
back someone did say ask the Marketing department)
