Can you clarify one thing for me: When I studied datasheets for these
it looked like they drop 50% of their capacitance at a DC voltage
of 10-20V.

Doesn't that make them a so-so bargain for power supply bulk capacitance ?

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
