I agree. I wouldn't ever use DX mode even when shooting with a DX lens.
I recently did some tests w a 35mm 1.8 AFS DX lens on this camera. It covers a larger area than you would expect and if used wide open at 1.8 when shooting relatively close you have nearly 100% FX coverage with only slight vignetting.
I would just shoot with this lens and decide on cropping later. If you are cropping a lot I don't think you will get all the dynamic range benefits of this camera.
