One use for a database without recoverability is for data
warehousing/reporting.

The database used as a datamart needs to be created without error but once
created the core tables can be read-only. Other read/write tables will be
used for searches, match-engine results and temporary tables to support
report-ready processes. Loss of data in these tables would not be serious
since they start out empty at the start of a process anyway.
