You can't have a backup for every backup's backup's backup's backup's backup's backup. At some point you're going to come across either a common point of failure, or a practical end to the redundancies -- that's just life. The fact that this hardly ever happens, and recovery is quick, says that someone's planning is working even during a failure, IMHO.
