Schluter-Ditra underlayment seal around the toilet seat drain

I am renovating my bathroom and I consider using Schluter-Ditra underlayment. There are some tutorials available, but none shows how to seal Ditra around the toilet seat drain (or I had not found them). Is there a way?
Another question: it is common to install the acrylic shower base directly on bare wood floor using mortar. Is this a good practice? It should be avoided any underlying?

Your referring to the uncoupling material for floors vs the membrane material for showers.

I've used the membrane for shower, the uncoupling material I have not, but the toilet flange is not a watertight connection unlike the shower drain so you would just install up to the flange.

Yes, shower to wood floor with a health mortar bed, shower pans are only so ridged and they can flex and creak without support!

Thank you.
Many years ago when no tutorials were available on YouTube and the only source of information was that orange Home depot books I totally renovated my bathroom. The sub-floor was steel net and I used steel net too since I did not know any better. A few years later the toilet faucet leaked and I found the first floor ceiling damaged.
Now I am trying to learn best practices to avoid stupid failures.
Any advise is valuable since I am not a professional in this business.
