Obviously not. Vist premium (when it is released) will be released w/ DX10 integrated. The first copy of Vista to hit the market will not have DX10 integrated.
EDIT: your thinking of DirectX9d as well.
The first copy of Windows Vista will be for businesses (correct?).

From everything I've read it is DX9.0L so I'm sticking to that.

Is WDDM the new version of DirectX or what?

Could you give me a link to where your finding this stuff. I'm trying to figure this all out.

Its not all one link, but most of it is from right here. Tyler works on it and beta tests it and there is a thread here on TF that i used to keep up w/. Also, i used to keep up w/ all this Vista stuff a while ago. Also, why would they go from c to d? Thats just pointless. And to answer the other question, yes DX10 cards should work w/ XP.
