Subject Re: Can region be merged with others automatically when all data in the region has expired and removed ?

Online merge is a bit dangerous.  Lots of applications require that the
table be set up pre-split.  This is probably more common than the need for
merging.

Having such a pre-split table collapse before it is full would be a
disaster.

It should be pretty easy to script taking a few regions off-line and then
nuking them.
