Possibly, however sometimes they simply break over time.

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.

I should have been much more specific. Sometimes consumers will refer to rear projection systems like the method Sony employs as DLP. What Sony does for their rear projection systems is focuses a light source through three LCD filters (RGB), then reflect off the mirror on the back of the unit and onto the screen.
