I am having trouble understanding the concept of Departure End of Runway. Most sources state that DER is at the end of the portion of the runway that can be used for takeoff (which, as far as I can tell, excludes the threshold at the end of the runway). But from the official FAA's Aeronautical Information Manual one can clearly see that DER starts at the "utmost" end of the runway (including threshold). Many other sources seem to support this, like this picture. Could someone point me to the right direction?
