Not that unusual.

A 24x7 application is deployed and the users try to run it. Something
is not quite right, so new DML is promoted and new DDL is submitted to
the DBA, who drops and recreates the table. The application
configuration is updated but the app never closes. This can't be that
unusual - I can't be the only one here thinking 24x7 uptime.
