I didn't dare to say it, but now that you do… :P

HBase exposes a TON of implementation details in public APIs.  Makes
things harder to refactor because you don't know if anyone out there
is relying on this method or extending that class.

Mocking out things that are hidden is certainly a bit harder than
calling into a public API javadoced as "for test only", but if it
keeps the APIs clean, then I think it's worthwhile.
