Good response from Jeremial Wilton. That reminds me of another aspect ;
The Export/Import method "RESET"s the reation date/time of the objects ;
This is surely not acceptable to me; On many instances during the
lifecycle of the database / implementation(s) the Creation date + Last
DDL Time + Timestamp have come in handy.

Well said. No need to club with migration/upgrade. If any problem arises
you would know where to look at.

Again another correct statement. We did upload the system tablespace
datafiles to Oracle but the response was use the exp/imp since we told
them that the db size (in this case) is just 70GB!!!!!.
