that's an interesting recommendation...
i've had both, dp18 and deep V. While indeed the Deep V (non-machined) is flush and smooth, the painted dp18's without braking surfaces look just as clean from a foot or two back.
IMO, if you're going brakeless, get the non-machined. they look very clean, and they're very cheap.
get em here, or your LBS. (cheapest price i've found on the net)
DP18's on the cheap
