If DSC remained on in full force, the car would instinctively cut power and apply the brakes when slippage is needed. This loose threshold, combined with default COMFORT mode (the car calls this TRACTION mode), provides for more dramatic weight transfer/squat (think: putting sandbags over the powered axles) and allows you to make more deliberate throttle inputs to get yourself out of a ditch, snow bank, or up wet/slippery inclines. (Note: if you do not have the adaptive suspension, COMFORT only applies to throttle response). DSC OFF, which requires that you hold the DSC button for a number of seconds, puts everything in SPORT and leaves managing the car's dynamics up to you.

This is why SPORT+ is simply SPORT with DTC enabled. If you press the button for DTC in SPORT or COMFORT, the car will go into TRACTION mode. But SPORT+ is the only way to turn DTC on without enabling TRACTION mode. So you can think of SPORT+ as power slide mode.
I see a bunch of words and none of them an answer to anything that has been asked by the OP. DTC wasnt mentioned even once and ur explaining how it works. Am I missing your point or how is this related to Sport-Mode-pedal-response-goes-to-comfort-when-DSC-is-OFF?
