>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0

> Currently a table or partition can be marked no_drop or offline.  This prevents users
from dropping or reading (and dropping) the table or partition.  This was built in 0.7 before
SQL standard authorization was an option. 
> This is an expensive feature as when a table is dropped every partition must be fetched
and checked to make sure it can be dropped.
> This feature is also redundant now that real authorization is available in Hive.
> This feature should be removed.
