This would certainly have prevented me from installing DirectX with a lot of overrides. But as I said, if this list exists, I have not found it.

I think Tom's page (where i guess you got the info from to install directX) is clear enough about this:

Keep in mind d3d8, d3d9, ddraw will only work as builtin, and in most cases you should try to use builtin dsound and dinput. I have had limited success with (dsound and dinput) in native Windows mode btw... The reason why these dlls have to be used in builtin mode is there need for direct access to your hardware. direct music and direct play can be used in native windows mode in most circumstances.""
