> {{LoadIncrementalHFiles}} and {{ImportTsv}} will create a table with the default setting
when the target table does not exist. I think this is an anti-feature. Neither tool provide
a mechanism for the user to configure the creation parameters of that table, resulting in
a new table with the default settings. I think it is unlikely that the default settings are
what the user actually wants. In the event of a table-name typo, that means data is silently
loaded into the wrong place. The tools should error when the destination table does not exist.
