RE: RMAN and filesystem backups

That's how I do all my rman backups, I define the backup retention in the controlfile and issue (10G).
delete noprompt force obsolete;
backup database plus archivelog delete input;
I actually don't back them up to tape. The tape backup comes along and backs them up. You just don't want to be backing up when the tape backup comes along. I validate quarterly and haven't had a problem yet.
Has anyone set up an environment where they run RMAN (hot) backups to disk and then move the backups to tape using a standard filesystem backup, then remove the older backups from disk.
Does anyone see any problems with doing this ?
