What you are counselling is that people write some of the worst possible code and NOT take advantage of those features and capabilities that make a product worth the money.

And just because at some point years later they MIGHT decide to change to another product where they can once again write mediocre code with minimal performance and scalability.

On one hand you toot BEA's horn by saying the Oracle gets its best performance with BEA. Then you advise removing the beast's teeth and claws.

Sounds a bit schizophrenic to me. Buy my product because it makes Oracle blazingly fast ... but when you implement it ... don't take advantage of any of those features that make it blazingly fast.
