It is still direct view, you are looking at a what is better described as a complex filter, as opposed to a shade.

Most of the time pixels that "develop later" were really there the entire time, just the person never noticed it.

I've never heard of any LCD based displays being advertised as DLP. Texas Instruments owns the DLP trademark, and I don't think they would allow somebody to call it DLP unless it was based on their DMD technology. I've never heard of it happening anyways, and I wouldn't be surprised if TI sued somebody over it if they did.
