Export EVERY field in EVERY object in the Data Export

Accounts & Contacts

Recently I uncovered that Data Export does NOT export all fields from all objects. The one in particular is the IsPrimary field on the Opportunity Contact Role. After a bit of back and forth with Tech support, they have created this knowledge article about this specific issue: https://help.salesforce.com/apex/HTViewSolution?urlname=How-can-I-backup-the-IsPrimary-field-on-OpportunityContactRole&language=en_US and this Known Issue: https://success.salesforce.com/issues_view?id=a1p30000000jYhFAAU.

I'm glad that this is the case, however, I think the bigger question is why have a Data Export that offers to export "all your organization's data into a set of comma-separated values (CSV) files." and call it a back up when some fields are not being exported?

So, the idea is to include EVERY field in EVERY object in the Data Export.
