Thank you for your interest in the CCDP program!
Looking at your post, I do not think you are eligible to take only DESGN and ARCH at this point. However, to be 100% sure, you should open a case with our certification team:
They can look at your actual profile in the system and determine that.

I'm in a similar situation to yourself and I've just checked my certification tracking system and it shows that I just need CCDA and ARCH to qualify for CCDP.
This is my undertanding of your situation. Any 642-XXX exam automatically renews your CCNP for a further 3 years so your CCNP is valid until 2015.
There are 4 sections which must be completed to achieve CCDP.
Section A contains CCDA
Section B contains ARCH
Section C contains CCNP which you already meet the criteria
Section D is just the Career Certification Agreement.
As you have fulfilled the criteria for C and D you should just need CCDA and ARCH
For candidates who hold a valid CCNP certification and want to achieve the CCDP certification, they will only need to pass the 640-864 DESGN exam or hold a valid CCDA (or having a valid CCIE can act as a pre-requisite as well) AND they must also pass the ARCH exam. For additional details, please reference the following FAQ.
Nabil, since you already have a case opened with the Certification & Communities Online Support team, they will be able to look at your Certification Tracking System records and confirm the remaining CCDP requirements with you.

"To achieve CCDP certification you must hold an active prerequisite of CCDA or any CCIE certification. Then take and pass Arch exam while your CCNP is valid."
