I've just discovered I wrote a couple of potentially useful blog notes about
the costs and impact of flashback logging a couple of years ago:

If I make a guaranteed restore point for a specific point in time. If the DB
generates archivelog, is there a way to estimate how much space will be needed?
We have limited space and may need to backout a build coming. The build
includes a data migration. One option is to take a backout and restore from
backup. The other options is a guaranteed restore point. The migration scripts
are done by a whole other group. I have no idea how much archivelog will be
