Um, no.  There is some attempt at muddying the waters by trying to
build this illusion into the discussion, but, in actual fact, PI issued
to a non-connected network would not likely put a route in the DFZ.
The other thing issued to a network that couldn't qualify for connected
PI through some less scrutinized process, OTOH, will eventually
result in those prefixes showing up in the DFZ for at least some
definitions of the DFZ.

One would hope, but, the answers to those questions are part of what
is not yet clear from the lack of definition/draft.
