      Description

      When creating a table to use for storing replication "bookkeeping", I found that the internal !SYSTEM user doesn't have the ability to create a table. Should it?

      Without this, the user would have to create/configure a custom local user account with proper credentials to read/write the replication table as well as persist this in accumulo-site.xml. My first impression is that this is excessive waste because the usage is purely within the tablet server already – need to try to figure out if there's a reason that !SYSTEM shouldn't be allowed to create tables.
