One of the great things about Oracle is that they expose a hell of a lot of the technology they use to build features like replication; ie: take
a look at DBMS_*.

If I am not wrong such procedures are only for administrative purpose.
For instance,
we cannot insert things in a queue to be replicated.

No... things like DBMS_PIPE are just general tools that can be used for anything. My point is that Oracle found they needed functionality like that do provide a feature they were writing (such as replication), and said "Well, if we need this, there's probably others that need it too", so they made it all available. Granted, they may use some internal interface to it that's faster, but they still provided it to everyone.
