    My goal was to keep the descriptor as lightweight as possible. They only describe but
do not validate. If we would add validation logic here, we would also need to add the same
logic somewhere else in the stack (i.e. table factories) if we parse the properties from a
file.

> At the moment every table source has different ways for configuration and instantiation.
Some table source are tailored to a specific encoding (e.g., {{KafkaAvroTableSource}}, {{KafkaJsonTableSource}})
or only support one encoding for reading (e.g., {{CsvTableSource}}). Each of them might implement
a builder or support table source converters for external catalogs.
> The table sources should have a unified interface for discovery, defining common properties,
and instantiation. The {{TableSourceConverters}} provide a similar functionality but use an
external catalog. We might generialize this interface.
> In general a table source declaration depends on the following parts:
> {code}
> - Source
>   - Type (e.g. Kafka, Custom)
>   - Properties (e.g. topic, connection info)
> - Encoding
>   - Type (e.g. Avro, JSON, CSV)
>   - Schema (e.g. Avro class, JSON field names/types)
> - Rowtime descriptor/Proctime
>   - Watermark strategy and Watermark properties
>   - Time attribute info
> - Bucketization
> {code}
> This issue needs a design document before implementation. Any discussion is very welcome.
