That is interesting. Well, anything is possible, and I know I have no idea how the process is setup or funded. However, usually active component and reserve component don't play nice when it comes to funding. ODS is setup for active and DCOIC is setup for reserves and they are most likely funded from their respective sources.CNRFC N7 via RCC
I guess you could still keep them separate by having ODS-Active and ODS-Reserve; I can't see them combining the Officers to mingle together, until the funding is figured out.
As far as how much more prepared it would make a DCO? I don't think @Reservist is that far off base with his "rants". Most Officers that go through ODS are Medical, Dental, JAGS, and Nurses. Not really the type of Officer that strays too far from those roles and they are obviously a different type of leader. I know quite a few and one Nurse co-worker, currently as a LCDR, still doesn't wear the uniform correctly or understand BIG Navy, including how to interact with operational enlisted sailors. I do my part to help mentor, though.
I agree more can be done, but not sure this solution addresses the issue of better training for those coming off the streets.
