I disagree, my former company was vendor, too and everything was journaled
and commitment control was heavily used. To switch off journaling or
commitment control was not possible, because we wanted to make sure that a
transaction is either completed or completely resettet.
What we did, if a client did not want to "waste" disc space, we reduced the
journal receiver size and did an automatic delete of the receiver as soon as
it was finished and the next one active. In this way we could guarantee that
all transactions were completed, but a complete restore or reset out of the
journal was not possible, but THIS is IMHO customer's choice or risk.
