Or very simply by the auto stats gathering process, which uses it no matter what is installed.

Indeed. Particularly when as 4. we could say:

4. Oracle consultants install partitioning in your EE installation and claim "it's part of EE". A few years later you're of course told it isn't and charged accordingly...

Said Oracle "con-sultants" are obviously nowhere to be seen and no one knows who/where they are. Until the next con-sultancy job gets advertised, that is: then they show up with a million certifications, Ace members, outrageous claims, etcetc...

Cynic, mooah?
