Initially I thought as well that it is a good idea to have the DA in in SD in order to calculate the TO-Distances. But practically, when looking at the diagramms in the flight-handbooks of the planes I know (Diamond DA40, Piper PA28's, Aquila A210), I did not find a way to calculate (or derive) the TO-Distance with DA as input. So the benefit of having DA in SD appears very limited to me.
But maybe I missed something and have now the opportunity to learn.
PS: There is a great app (IOS, Android I do not know) called "AutoDens" which is very handy for that
