I've turned that on for a couple of tables so we can test the resulting data generated, but trying to query against the FLASHBACK_TRANSACTION_QUERY view takes hours. I have no idea why, but it's horrendously slow, as if there's no index. Being a system table and view, I don't want to mess with it.

And looking at the data generated from it, it doesn't look like it would meet their ideas of the useless summary reports they want to generate either, like Gold was changed from Primary to Tertiary 16 times, Silver was changed from Secondary to Primary 32 times, etc.
