Which is the reason? The only security issue I see is that the support
guys are able to see literals and, to some extents, bind variables that
are in the SGA. But if they have access to the data as well, this
doesn't increase, usually, the amount of information they can access...
So, it would be interesting to know why you don't want to give access to
those views.
