A very interesting topic, actually. I personally don't have any experience with it, so I'm not qualified to comment. I certainly agree with the sentiment about looking at new features with a critical eye, but I wouldn't want to stop anyone from gaining experience with it. Just because a gazillion people have used something doesn't mean your particular configuration won't have issues, either.
I suspect the answer to #2 is that Oracle patches also include executable components, so you might have issues. Don't the patches have a documented unpatch?
My own view is paranoia isn't enough. Always have a way out when you are responsible for production upgrades, preferably so you can fix stuff before anyone notices you screwed up.
