Move table online and update the indexes at the same time.

Hi all,
We need to rebuild our table and index segments. I guess we wouldn't have 
problems rebuilding the indexes online. However, I don't see any way to 
move tables online. Of course, I can issue ALTER TABLE ... MOVE ONLINE, 
but this would invalidate all indexes of the table. I will have to rebuild 
them and this would take hours. We cannot afford an outage of even seconds 
(it would be an outage since our OLTP application will just time-out 
without these indexes). I couldn't find the way to update indexes together 
with tables. I know there is an option to update global indexes while 
modifying a partition but could spot nothing about non-partitioned tables 
and maintenance of indexes together with table move.

Please let me know if I miss something or the is some work-around for
