Excellent approach.

The idea that ROI of good DBA raises each time Oracle increases license fees is great.

on an optimistic (and rather joking one as well) note:

I always thought, that there are some smart guys in Oracle Corp. who
take care
of securing DBA and technical consultant's jobs (especially during
recessions and alike).

Just think of it - the relative expenses for keeping the good DBA (who
can carry out his
duties without those "automated &| GUI tools") is now lowered by 40%!

Well, that is a new move. Previously their strategy was just in
enough bugs and other rabbush. Of course the money argument is stronger :-)
