Generic datasource (function module) enabled for ODP ?

Hi All,
Would anyone know if a generic BW DataSource based on FM can be ODP enabled (for delta extraction) ?

SAP mentions below: "To use the ODP data replication API for any generic DataSource (extraction methods view extraction or domain extraction) you need to implement SAP Note 1585204 and Single Extractors can be released with RODPS_OS_EXPOSE "

1) Does the above mean that only customer generic DataSource of the type View/Table(V) and Domain(D) can be ODP enabled and generic DataSource based on function module(F1,F2,FS) cannot be enabled as ODP DataSource (with delta) ?

2) If generic DataSource based on function module can be ODP enabled - then does the generic delta work with a delta DTP's (Data Extraction option: Directly from source system. PSA not used for small amount of data) or only DTP's with full-load is supported ?

Tried it out myself and it works!.. below are the steps:-

Create FM based generic extractor (copy/update SE37: RSAX_BIW_GET_DATA_SIMPLE)

Assign generic delta field to the extractor (RSo2)

Release the extractor for ODP (via SE38: RODPS_OS_EXPOSE)

Replicate the datasource in BW

Create required transformation to InfoProvider (DSO/Cube)

Create Delta DTP (Option should show - Directly from source system. PSA not used)

Execute Delta DTP at first "Initial Data (Delta Init)" is created for source (check in ODQMON)

Next Delta DTP execution will trigger "Data Changes (Delta)" (check in ODQMON)
