What Is the Current State of RTG/SAGA On 500 V2+?

I'm having some trouble figuring out what the current state of the RTG/SAGA implementation is with the Gold build. My questions boil down to 2, I think:

1. Does the current state of the core allow for 100% usage of the DIGITAL-VIDEO port or is it still necessary to switch back and forth between RGB and DIGITAL-VIDEO?

2. Is my understanding correct that SAGA will essentially provide AGA capabilities on an Amiga 500?

Thanks in advance!

The V2 is currently shipped with "GOLD2"
This means all V2 are Accelerators with Fast CPU/FPU and RTG.
 
The V4 comes with "GOLD3" which means it includes SAGA with AGA and RTG.
