> [~jamestaylor] mentioned that recently Phoenix discovered at some point the {{HConnection#getTable}}
"lightweight table reference" methods stopped throwing TableNotFoundExceptions. It used to
be (in 0.94 and 0.96) that all APIs that construct HTables would check if the table is locatable
and throw exceptions if not. Now, such exceptions will only be thrown at the time of the first
operation submitted using the table reference, should a problem be detected then. We did a
bisect and it seems this was changed in the 0.98.1 release by HBASE-10080. Since the change
has now shipped in 10 in total 0.98 releases we should just document the change, in the javadoc
of the HConnection class, Connection in branch-1+.
