Merry Christmas.
 
The only time this has come up has been with the review by the State of California, OSHPD, for hospitals.  Drywall ceilings can be used for bracing non-bearing partitions only when the ceiling is the same height and continuous in the overall area (building or floor).  There were no design values used in the evaluation.
