I think it's good that hoarding is classified on its own now, personally. I watch Hoarders a lot and I've noticed with these people that it's often a case of them not realizing what's happened, like what Scarf said. Most of them seem to have some other disorder though, whether mental or physical, which I think contributes to it.
As for the Asperger's and autism thing...what exactly is that about? Did they raise the criteria for the diagnosis or something? Maybe I'm just reading it wrong. Having a hard time comprehending what it's saying, sorry.
