Most systems I work on don't have a maintenance window. For those that
do, the window is at best once a day, and that's nowhere near often
enough to be vacuuming any database I've run across. I'm not saying they
don't exist, but effort put into restricting vacuums to a maintenance
window would serve very few people. It'd be much better to put effort
into things like piggyback vacuum.
