I see no privileged data in that view; granting select on that view to the application user should not, in my opinion, pose a problem.  
What sequence problem was introduced by moving to RAC, if I may ask?  There may be another solution rather than granting select on a data dictionary view.  David Fitzjarrell

Subject: Using V$_SEQUENCES   

Hi Folks,
We have a need to use V$_SEQUENCES.NEXTVALUE column in our custom programs to try and solve an issue that was introduced when we implemented RAC and is impacting our custom programs. Since this view is only available to the SYS schema, I am not sure what the implications are (performance, etc.)  in exposing it to our custom schema. Are there any suggestions on whether it should be exposed to a non-SYS account? Thanks,
