Yes, but if you are on 10g you could use flashback database to recover from a failover without having to rebuild your primary. At least, if your db files are still intact.

well for protection against loss of the original box, it's obviously not a great plan! It might provide some protection against logical corruption (the mythical 'junior dba' for example) if configured with a delay.

As far as switchover/switchback goes - that operation doesn't involve a rebuild - though failover does.
