Why not ? I specifically said you would prepare a few sensible plans
based on statistics/expected variations of the statistics, and parameter
value ranges which would trigger different plans.

So for the like query case you could save 2 plans, one for the indexable
case, one for the not indexable case. Then at runtime you choose the
proper one based on the pattern value. The meta-plan I mentioned would
be a collection of plans with rules to choose the right one at run time
based on parameter values and perhaps the current statistics.

This of course would need a lot more preparation time than just prepare
one plan, but that's why you want to do it upfront and then cache the
results. A central plan repository mentioned in other posts would fit
nicely here... and you could use prepared plans for non-parameterized
queries too by simply considering the constants as parameters, to
increase the chances for a prepared plan reuse - this of course for
complex enough queries.
