-------------------------------------------

             Summary: Decide if we want to make user types keyspace scoped
                 Key: CASSANDRA-6438
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-6438
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Sylvain Lebresne


Currently, user types are declared at the top level. I wonder however if we might not want
to make them scoped to a given keyspace. It was not done in the initial patch for simplicity
and because I was not sure of the advantages of doing so. However, if we ever want to use
user types in system tables, having them scoped by keyspace means we won't have to care about
the new type conflicting with another existing type.

Besides, having user types be part of a keyspace would allow for slightly more fine grained
permissions on them.
