If using DVOS as ED robs the barrel "looks", I wonder how the piston filler version performs in terms of barrel "looks" with dark ink in? The piston version does not even have a choice of converter or cartridges.

I just got a new DVOS with an F nib and my first fill is using the converter. Excellent pen, superb wet writing. But after a couple of pages of writing the converter is now half empty!!! I am now gatehring courage to try ED next time :-)

Just for the reference, I am using -
Ink: Eclat De Saphir from J Herbin
Paper: Rhodia plain 80 g

Aren`t the Waterman cartridges proprietary?

No. Waterman carts are international standard size.

Waterman cartridges are longer than standard international cartidges, though most pens that take international cartridges will work with the Waterman cartridges. I think they're sized to fit any pen that will take an international converter.

Waterman carts are also slimmer than most international cartridges. Most international carts won't fit into a Waterman Gentleman (for example) because of their girth.
Yes, yes I do owe you a letter.
