Some DSP optimization in 2.5 it seems, and also something unexpected

Actually, I read about v2.5 having code/algo/DSP/whatever optimizations, that is: More juice!
I think it was DI who said that, don't remember where, and I had totally forgotten until I loaded one of the patches I use with my A band, the band I'm using Helix with. It's a patch where I'd need different dirt options and I can't get them because I'm running low on dsp, so I try to load a different one than the one that's there and I notice that I now have like twice the HX drive options I had before but... the whole legacy bank of drives appears greyed out??? Do legacy drives actually require more dsp than the HX ones or have I just found a bug?

I would go even further and say legacy distortion models are all very similar in DSP load.
I did some testing, adding and removing blocks to see if I there was any "lighter" legacy dirt. I add something and check if they're still available... add something else... yep, they're still there... another block... boom, they disappear, but all of them at once.
I could try smaller increases, for a more precise measurement, but so far it's all I have

If this paradigm of some legacy effects using as much or more DSP is consistent I have to admit I would really like to see some more meat & potatoes HX mono reverbs added like a "Spring" and "Plate". I don't dabble much with ambient stuff and for the most part just need a boring old but great sounding couple of "standard" reverbs that will get used in the bulk of my presets. I know it is a little early given the banquet that was just laid out for us but I would love to see a couple of these basic reverbs come to the Helix in HX mono versions. For what it is worth it is the awesomeness of finally having some new HX mono versions that inspires me to want a few more traditional reverb types of these added, especially if they will actually use less or the same amount of DSP as the legacy versions. What version of the new HX mono reverbs would most people consider to be closest to an old-school "spring" type of reverb?

I'm positive they'll be adding more meat and potatoes HX versions at some time. They just needed to cover the "massive sounding" ones first. :)
