11. Unless the court explicitly states so, then no.

Also, it's highly unlikely that the court doesn't decide on the constitutionality of DOMA. Their appointing of a lawyer to defend this issue is just a procedural issue for other courts to follow as case precedent. I.e. if another case comes along with almost exactly situation, then it will answer the question that the Supreme Court has the jurisdiction to hear the case.
