 Review comment:
   My comment can be a bit misunderstanding. Yeah, my point is we just need to be consistent
with how it's exposed. An example is that now, contrary to `useCatalog()`, `Catalog`'s APIs
not only document `CatalogException` in javadoc but also `throws CatalogException` in their
   Seems that we all agree upon the javadoc part. What do you guys think of the signature
part? If we all feel it's not necessary to expose it to users in the API, I feel it's better
to remove `throws CatalogException` from `Catalog`'s API signatures to be consistent.
