I certainly like Harada's take on DLC, DLC should be a little something extra, new characters with new move sets (and more importantly, people who don't buy the DLC and therefore can't practice against DLC characters are left at a disadvantage) are not something that should be available as DLC and it certainly shouldn't be DLC if the content is on the disc.
A shame that they want to hold off, the flame wars that this could have started...-sigh-
