> CASSANDRA-5845 made it so that schema changes in a major-mixed cluster are not propagated
to the minorer-major nodes. This lets us perform backwards-incompatible schema changes in
major releases safely - like adding the schema_triggers table, moving all the aliases to schema_columns,
getting rid of the deprecated schema columns, etc.
> Even this limitation might be too strict, however, and should be avoided if possible
(starting with at least versioning schema separately from messaging service versioning, and
resorting to major->minor schema block only when truly necessary and not for every x->y
