There are a few low power OTAs that are carried by DISH in HD ... plus a few second HD signals that are carried (one OTA with two HDs both carried by DISH). If it makes sense for DISH or is negotiated by the channel (including owners with channels in other markets) channels can be carried.
With limited and precious transponder space, I don't look for Dish to provide HD locals that are not mandated, i.e, if they are on a sub channel or they are on a low power OTA channel, they may not show up in HD for some time.
But yes, I agree that non-mandated channels are not guaranteed carriage.
