I believe DSC+T as found in E46s, E39s and the X5 does indeed skid/brake/fart around with individual wheels to get the car pointed the right way again. This technology could potentially have helped this dude save his line after he overcooked the turn.

ASC as featured in E36 M3's and Z3's only reduces power when it senses the wheel start to spin much faster than it should, not any help if you're already on the brakes.
