from the linked article:
"The second important prerequisite for DSDM projects is the 
decomposability of the project. The possibility of decomposition into 
smaller parts enables the iterative and incremental properties of DSDM. 
It is even possible to create several smaller projects working according 
to DSDM principles."

I think that the working groups site (focused around DEPs) that was 
proposed in Vancouver will help with this quality. If there is a working 
group centered around a feature, subsystem, or usability issue, the time 
boxed release schedule can be a guiding force for the group's 
development cycle too.
