No.  DEP-3 is an optional standard.

I'm not sure if it should be incorporated into Policy or not.  It's
probably not a bad idea, although we should deal with DEP-5 first and see
if that provides a reasonable precedent for how to do so.

One of the DEP drivers is not yet happy with the level of specificity and
detail provided to ensure that the results are interoperable, and I'd like
to see those concerns resolved before including it in Policy.  (Which is
currently being worked on, as I understand it.)
