Change subject: [DOCS] Tighten up advice about first COMPUTE INCREMENTAL STATS

Patch Set 2:

File docs/shared/impala_common.xml:

              :         <codeph>DROP INCREMENTAL STATS</codeph>)
> are these drops required?
They are not required if you *exactly* what you are doing, but that does not apply to most
people. Dropping first is always safe and definitely the recommended practice.

If you do not drop and switch back-and-forth between compute stats and compute incremental
sats, then you may end up with "unexpected" table metadata.

*incremental* stats has no effect on the row counts and NDVs used in query optimization.
