On the checkout to SharePoint: yes once that version of the document goes out of Documentum, that document is not under Documentum control. But this is the same as the user will email the actual document to someone else or store that version on the local machine.
The actual document record or object is still in Documentum and under control and once you check the version back in, the new version is automatically under control of the system.
The business case for check out to SharePoint is realy about having the flexibility of collaboration and this means giving more control to the end user. We see often that request in a Documentum soley envirnoment and offering that flexibility within the same system is a security risk. That is why the checkout to SharePoint is a very good alternative if real collaboration in a controlled enviroment is the demand.
Trying to mimic the security policy from Documentum in SharePoint is not a real option as they are totaly different and in Documentum you have much MUCH more options and possibilities.
Hope it helps.
Performance testing of 7.1 showed significant improvement especially with regards to WAN for many operations up to 5 * improvement in our environment.
A published performance paper is not available for 7.1 yet. We do have a white paper published for 7.0 here: https://community.emc.com/docs/DOC-26182
You are correct, The D2 Config is respected for most basic ECM functions of the Browse Web Part. Import, New Doc, Checkout, Checkin, View and Edit Properties. It is also available for the Data Services.
We use the D2 APIs so D2 Config processing of autonaming, autolinking etc. all apply.
This is documented within the release notes of 7.1. For D2 properties you will see some limitations documented there as well.
