Thanks Alberto! It was w good read (11g new density).

One question: You have mentioned that CBO classifies at run-time the
histogram type as it's stored in DD using a heuristic. As per my knowledge,
based on NDV and #Buckets requested, CBO decides whether to create HB or
Freq histogram and save the type in data dictionary, which is visible
through dba_tab_columns.histogram column.

Please correct me!
