Your export from Sunday is still quite handy for recreating a dropped user, recreating dropped PL/SQL, fixing privileges that have been changed, etc. I always make sure that we have daily export (often times with ROWS=N) for this purpose. You can always import with SHOW=Y to find the commands that you need.

Yes, you are correct and this is the point that has been made, however, from an application point of view, in that case I would not be able to guarantee consitency...

If I have an export from last sunday, and it's wednesday, I would still go for wither a full DB restore or a db duplication en export/import of the whole schema, not just the table.

But that's just my point of view...
