Confusing acronyms aside -- DTA was already taken -- R2's new data-tier applications feature has gotten a fair bit of attention. The DAC is basically a collection of database objects and schemas for a particular application.

A facet of Microsoft's new multi-server management features, DAC should ultimately be an asset for developers, though it will likely aid in the change control process for DBAs as well
