I do not have experience with the Dewalt/Makita/or Festool router's DC. I do have experience with 2 other brands DC arrangement and it was so horrible that it was useless, maybe even dangerous since the vac hose connected to the router made things quite unhandy (I guess the Dewalt setup helps with this). I've read a few posts about the Festool, and most claim it works no better. My opinion is that the router is one of those tools that would be very hard to tame when making a blind cut like a dado. Long ago I started routing MDF only when I can do it outside. The only thing this does is clear dust well (on a windy day) and keeps it out of the shop. I hope someone else chimes in; but I fear you're after the holy grail.
