...the thread I started was about the practicality of using DG
for a lot of databases.  Maybe there is nobody on list that
has more than, say, 10 database that need DR, but does the
comment "(reasonably) easy to manage" hold fast if we are
talking about providing DR for, say, 10 or 20 databases?

One of our accounts has over 80 databases that need DR and
I must say that in my mind chewing on crushed glass would
bring more pleasure than trying to deal with 80 primary/standby
DG relationships... It just seems to me that at some number
of databases, the only humanly possible way to get DR would
be at the storage level... thoughts ?
