SQL 2008 SP2 CTP Stacks the DAC

Microsoft floated out a SQL Server 2008 SP2 CTP earlier this week that might seem like just a bunch of tweaks and fixes all rolled up into one. But apparently there's more to it than that. What I'd love is for someone to explain whether (and how) features like the data-tier application (or DAC; apparently DTA, which makes more sense, was taken) make DBAs jobs easier (or harder).
