I can understand their concerns, but at least RMAN and Datapump are standard Oracle-provided & supported utilities so it's not like you're using some obscure 3rd-party tools, and as long as the procedure is well documented and, the recovery procedure is fully tested and validated (as it should be with any backup strategy), then I think it should be a solid solution.

I think the recovery is what they would balk at since it would require two different processes rather than one cookie-cutter solution for all.
