My guess is that this won't be the case. Dx 11 didn't matter because the consoles were dx 9 and, sad to say, PC waits on consoles. If dx 11.2 is part of the xbox one and applicable to how the ps4 works, then the console ports to PC would by default require it.
It sounds like dx 11.2 allows some form of unified memory on PCs similar to what consoles have. Seemingly a necessity. Also, the consoles are 64 bit, so expect 64 bit games now. Will need lots of RAM on GPU and motherboard
Also I doubt the xbone exclusivity means anything for consoles since they are already using unified memory. It's more beneficial for PCs
