I am not an expert on this, but I think using LoadLibrary helps compilation on 
systems where the library is not available, e.g. cross compiling. Last time I 
checked mingw did not have a d3d10.a file to link to d3d10.dll, and it would 
also help to compile d3d10 apps on winxp(not sure if there's a need for that 

Then there are also sort of undocumented internal dlls which wine still has to 
implement - ddrawex.dll comes to my mind, which seems to be a special ddraw 
lib for Internet Explorer. It contains the IDirectDraw3 interface, sort of a 
missing link, and I didn't find a ddrawex.lib or ddrawex.a to link against.
