Also, let devs erase or corrupt your backups... <G> Anyway, standby data are not backups - they're just a copy to take over if the primary one fails (you can still use that for reports/analytic, if acceptable).

A test/dev copy is just again a copy for that specific task - so you can modify and restore it at will.

Backups have to be managed as backups.
