My problem was with 11203, so yes, it's a problem.

I can't use expdp/impdp because that raises a separate problem. To do a TT impdp, you must have a database link pointing back from the receiving database to the source database. Out two databases were "air-gapped" so no network connections possible between the two.

Exp and imp work fine. For the TT and for the obtaining of the metadata to allow me to recreate the missing empty tables. At least in 11203 it is.
