Oracle Fusion Install - On premise (Bare Metal, OVM) or Hosted

Whoever is implementing Oracle Fusion will definitely have to answer the following question; 
Do you need to have the Oracle Fusion environment hosted on your premises or do you want to host with a third party or host this in Oracle via the Saas or OnDemand model?
To add some more complexity, Oracle provides you with option either to install the application on 'bare metal' or leverage Oracle Virtual Machines (OVM) to host all components.
Our experience has been that the fastest and easiest way to get going is if you use hosting service of Oracle or some third-party. However, the flip side of using a hosted applications is that you will see an increase in the turnaround time if you are upgrading, applying patches or debugging, which will be quite high in the initial days and you should keep a buffer for all these exigencies in your project plan.
The next best alternative is to use an on-premise OVM install. You can be up and running in 3 days. Internally at Wipro we are able to set up an environment using OVM install in less than 3 days. The last route is to go for a bare-metal install. This is quite a challenge from DBA perspective and can take well over 2 weeks to set up the environment. Oracle ships both bare-metal as well as OVM versions of the releases, so customers can choose either of these.

I am doing Oracle Fusion Applications 11g Installation while Running Fusion Applications Repository Creation Utility (Apps RCU) after the Tablespaces creation phase

I am getting the following error while creating the required Schemas which is the last steps of rcu.

ora-24010: Queue fusion.acr_ads_ims_queue does not exist
ora-06512 at SYS.DBMS_AQADM LINE 270
ORA-6512 AT LINE 98

Can we Ignore the Error.

Here is the content of fusionapps_postimport_latest.sql which is the Error file under/oracle/fusionapps/installers/apps_rcu/lrcu/integration/fusionapps/sql Direct.
132 FA_DBINSTALL_CREATE_TRIG('logon_trigger_for_fusion after logon on
133 fusion_runtime.schema
134 ','begin
135 execute immediate ''ALTER SESSION SET CURRENT_SCHEMA = FUSION'';
136 end;
137 ');
138 FA_DBINSTALL_CREATE_TRIG('logon_trigger_for_fusion_bi after logon on fus ion_bi.schema
139 ','begin
140 execute immediate ''ALTER SESSION SET CURRENT_SCHEMA = FUSION'';
141 end;
142 ');
143 END;
144 DECLARE
145 num_cpus NUMBER;
146 BEGIN

148 SELECT value INTO num_cpus FROM v$osstat WHERE stat_name = 'NUM_CPUS';
149 SYS.UTL_RECOMP.RECOMP_PARALLEL(threads => num_cpus, schema => NULL);
150 END;
151 END;
152 /

Appreciate if anyone could suggest ... Can we Ignore the Error ?
Thanks & regards
