You should test this sort of thing in a test environment and see what it 
does.  Sure, appropriate caution is required before implementing 
something in a mission-critical production environment, but that wasn't 
suggested here.  You shouldn't just rule something out because you think 
some manager won't approve it.  Give it a try in a non-threatening area 
- a test or staging server - and demonstrate its usefulness - you and 
they may be surprised!
