Import files encoded in H264 or DVCPro?

Does Final Cut Express import files encoded in H264?
Apple’s Technical Specifications page http://support.apple.com/kb/SP536 is silent about supported codecs and makes no mention of supported file formats at all. It notes some CAMERAS supported, but not files or codecs.
From the FCP Express manual:
*Video Formats Supported by Final Cut Express
Final Cut Express supports any video format that uses an installed QuickTime codec.*
On the same page, a table appears listing
*D-5 HD
D-6
HDCAM
HDCAM SR
DVCPRO HD
XDCAM HD
HDV
RGB video 1080p30 720p60*
Can this really be? Does anyone have experience editing in FCP Express in DVCPro HD, or H264, for example? Or is the manual just misleading?

FCE does not support H.264 for editing. Neither does FCP BTW.
The manual is mistaken. DVCPRO HD is only available with FCP.
