Check this link out, Dell's cable is PDMI and has already been modded to take a microUSB connector.
Dell Streak procures a hacked-up mini USB adapter, gets friendly with your dusty cables -- Engadget
Interesting that Dell has used some degree of future proofing with advanced specs in many respects.

Going to try and build one all the same, got the 'standard' pinouts from Wikipedia, will give it a go once I locate connectors.

Won't matter what they've done to it, at the PC end it's still just 4 connection points that the extension cable will be extending. Think of it as moving the PC port nearer the Dell cable rather than the other way around and you'll see why it won't matter. The only possibility would be if they've weakened the cable signal to the point that extending it just can't carry the voltage, but chances of that are nil really.
