Veigar, for example, does massive DPS over about 2 seconds, and then does just about zero afterwards.
We give the DPS label to champions with sustained DPS.

Mages are burst damage champs. Physical carries are DPS champs.

Maybe you should try to educate your own ass and learn to read. Writing's all nice but if you can't read the replies then GG.
