Which bladed spokes require hub slotting?

All the spokes that say "bladed" on them aren't on the dt swiss page - they are actually just "oval" ones that do not require slotted hubs.

All of the wheelsmith bladed spokes are also of the oval variety. Does anyone still make *real* bladed spokes anymore? 3mm+ flat profile (not the 2.0 which of the oval variety).
