Can i run DC Trains on DCC Layouts?

I'm thinking of switching to a dcc layout, but i didn't know if i can still run DC trains on a DCC layout. I know that i could convert the engines to DCC, but i want to keep the engines in their original state. Will a DCC decoder let me run DC engines on a DCC layout??? Thanks for any help!

The Digital Command Control (DCC) standards adopted by the NMRA provide for the operation of ONE non-decoder equipped engine to operate on a DCC layout.

Why keep them "in their original state"? Are they somehow "valuable"? Look at it this way: suppose you decided to sell off certain engines you no longer wanted or needed. In this day and age, a decoder-equipped loco will likely garner more attention from prospective buyers than a straight-DC engine.
