I'd argue that I could definitely off-load my backup needs if I only cared about the data, and not so much of the physical aspects of how it's laid out. I generally don't like to use ROWIDs as data values since they can change, and I can't think of a reason why I'd care if the object id's were different -- can you give me an example?
