This is how we play it also.
The reasoning to me is that, if you subtracted the DCV from the roll line,
then they are getting to know you are firing the bow and they have a great
chance to dodge the arrow that is flying in at them. Most people may know
that they are being shoot at, but not enough people can actually do anything
about it.
