DIP is and has been dear to many a SharePoint office worker. And it's the one functionality which has stopped companies from upgrading from Word 2013. That time has come to and end. Puzzlpart extraordinaire Ole Kristian and Mikael always has the customers interest at heart, and wanted to bless all on-premises environments for SharePoint with this feature.
Chrismas has come early people!
