Sorry, I should have made myself more clear. The Alphabetical DCS
contains just the name and number columns. It makes it easy to look up a
number when only the name is known. Then you can go to the complete DCS
for the other information. So duplicate entries just make the Alphabetical
DCS file larger than it needs to be...

What I was referring to here is the file of new demos being added to
the DCS at each update. If this file were available for download then we
could update any working copies we have. By "working copies" I mean copies
of the DCS that have been modified for special purposes, and which would be
difficult or time-consuming to regenerate from scratch each time the DCS
was updated...
