Are SunOS data files binary compatible with Windows Server 2003? Is an Oracle 10g database the same as an 11g?

Restoring a database is essentially nothing more than restoring files from backup and possibly re-applying redo. rman automates and simplifies this, but its job description doesn't include binary file translations between O/S's, nor does it include database upgrade services.
