dataguard = Rac and/or Standby for 10G

Is anyone using Dataguard? Is it worth the extra $$. We are still firmly on the fence as to whether we are going 10G Rac or just 10G. We are not a true 24/7 shop and our applications are not ready for Rac or Standby (i.e. they would have to be restarted) so I am wondering if I should bother with dataguard or not. We have standby for 8i now and just wondering if dataguard is worth it.  

I plan to test drive 10G dataguard, I was just wondering what others thought.  

Oh, and we decided to keep the binaries local for the oracle home instead of on the San. We couldn't find a compelling reason either way for us. We would not have plenty of room on the SAN so we would not have had to buy more storage (yet any way). The internal / san time was the same. We really didn't have that much hitting the binaries.
