This time around I can understand Oracle's reasoning. The 11gr2 dbcontrol is almost as good as grid and likely an overkill for basic sites. A somewhat simpler, trimmed down tool will be enough for most small to medium sites. Leaving the elephant gun to where it's really needed: the 3000+ db sites (don't laugh, I'm told they exist!). I'd be happy with a basic performance analysis tool like Mumbai and a simple dbconsole that just starts/stops and controls the scheduler and jobs: likely the hardest part to manage outside of any extensive performance tuning needs.
