I don't think it's premature to congratulate everyone with a DR. We know it's not a WL, and they're not going to start rejecting from the SPWL in March before they've even hit a seat deposit deadline, let alone rejected the lower tiers of the WL.
I think that the general consensus was that the SPWL was either YP or "Whoops we've admitted too many people." If it were YP, then those who were cleared off were those who expressed interest (e.g., my requesting a visit to the school showed interest). If it were the too-many-admissions business, now that they have a clearer picture of how many people are attending, they are able to let in those they wanted to let in in the first place.
Or, I could be way off base here.
