DLC is the same thing like downloadable maps or addons from the developer. I'm sure nobody called Activision or Microsoft/Bungie assholes for releasing extra maps, some for free even.
I'm sure mostly that people didn't rage when Blizzard decided to rip years worth of extra updates to World of Warcraft and then release them again at a later date, just to piss you off.
Although in essence it is DLC, the same as a COD map is DLC but rockstar specificly said they're making them a lot more than your normal DLC. If it's new story missions then it is part of GTA IV, if they continue the story through DLC then this will be achknowlaged in future GTAS (weather or not it's mentioned is irrelivant).
