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

@Andy
Had a small discussion with Laxman regarding the role of CREATE.  I think the suggestion given
by Laxman makes sense.  Even if online schema modification is introduced the role of CREATE
with the above said functions will still apply.  Just wanted to add my thoughts in this.

Thanks Andy and Laxman.

> The table owner concept was a design simplification in the initial drop.
> First, the design changes under review means only a user with GLOBAL CREATE permission
can create a table, which will probably be an administrator.
> Then, granting implicit permissions may lead to oversights and it adds unnecessary conditionals
to our code. So instead the administrator with GLOBAL CREATE permission should make the appropriate
grants at table create time.
