I disagree - why not do full=y and save yourself the effort of having to do all 
the individual schemas and recreate all the users, roles, privileges, profiles, 
public synonyms, etc.?  You say you would "simply recreate . . .", but it's not 
really so simple when you're working with large systems that have thousands of 
objects and users.  I've done several upgrades from 8i to 10g using exp/imp 
with full=y and not had any problems.

To see all the objects that are included only in a FULL export, see Table 19-3

Why would you want to do an exp with full=Y?
