1) I tried it now in XP and "ATi MPEG Video Dekoder" does not work correct at 1080i in MPC-HC. I think it's the same in Win7.
2) The most used HDTV application in Europe is DVBViewer, and he plays MPEG-2 Slices in VA + "ATi MPEG Video Dekoder" + DXVA perfect. And he is the one the info comes from. Sorry for that, sometimes I forget to regard all the different systems in countries.
If 1080i is already active in DXVAChecker at 800 stock it may be useless to overclock.
That's no problem. I couldn't get DXVA checker to install earlier on, so I went ahead and overclocked. Now that I see the overclock doesn't assist with VA, I'm back to stock speeds.

You can also run cheese slices within DXVA checker. Click Directshow filters button, then select the video file and then click on the MS DTV-DVD decoder>Play>EVR. If the player shows VectorAdaptive, then it's being used.
I've taken two consecutive screenshots during playback of the "Slicies MPEG2 PAL 1080i 25.ts" clip, so you can see how the grid lines are not solid when in motion and also how in the VA section, as pointed out by blaubart in his original post, the diagonal lines don't remain lines when in motion.
In addition to the above, I've attached a screenshot of the "man in glasses" 576i clip, just so you can see VA in use on my system.
All images were taken in MPC HC using the Microsoft MPEG-2 Video Decoder and the EVR CP.
I tested the Slicies MPEG2 PAL 1080i 25.ts clip in DXVA checker by selecting "Microsoft MPEG-2 Video Decoder => Play => EVR" and it states below the video "Processor Device: VectorAdaptiveDevice ()". While that might indicate that VA is being used, judging by the tell-tale signs, as mentioned at the start of my post, something is definitely amiss.
I also just wanted to say thanks for all the help so far you two, I'm learning a lot more about deinterlacing than I thought.
