Does this mean we can no longer depend upon DSPPGMREF to find the programs impacted by a changed PF?
Correct. The reasoning is that you shouldn't need to, because you don't have to recompile every program that touches the table, only those that actually need logic changes. At least with the static SQL, the first example, you can still build a list of programs to start your analysis.

A drawback to dynamic SQL (your second example) is that during impact analysis you really have no way to track which programs are using a given table.
