> Currently, users don't need to have Write access to {{SYSTEM.CATALOG}} and other tables,
since the code is run on the server side as login user. However for {{SYSTEM.SEQUENCE}}, write
permission is still needed. This is a potential security concern, since it allows anyone to
modify the sequences created by others. This JIRA is to discuss how we can improve the security
of this table. 
> Potential options include
> 1. Usage of HBase Cell Level Permissions (works only with HFile version 3 and above)
> 2. AccessControl at Phoenix Layer by addition of user column in the {{SYSTEM.SEQUENCE}}
table and use it for access control (Can be error-prone for complex scenarios like sequence
sharing)
> Please advice.
