Hi Joe,

I say the logic is correct, with one possible caveat that you would not
wan't to stay in this situation too long, if the controlfile record
capacity has "wrapped"/overflowed over the one-week default for backup
info, you will losing the oldest entries about backups. It depends of
the "window" needed of recoverability. controfile_keep_record_time
global init.ora setting.
