System/site constraints and iterators should NOT affect the METADATA table

      Description

      Currently any system and site wide constraints and iterators set will affect the !METADATA table. While we want to provide this level of configuration to make things easier for users, we also don't want to have this feature which is essentially useless due to ill effects on this critical table. We should make specific exceptions that any site/system-wide iterators, constraints, and other scan/write-time affecting configurations do not affect the !METADATA site. If we need an iterator/constraint running against the !METADATA table, it will have to be configured for it specifically.

      Do not fix until after ACCUMULO-323 has been resolved.

          In the future, it would be nice if we didn't support system level per-table properties, and instead only supported them at a namespace/table-group level.

          System-wide configuration should be added/merged with the default namespace configuration, which won't apply to the system tables.

          It does NOT look like this was addressed in the 802 patch. Can anyone confirm?

          I think you are correct, but it should be an easy bugfix if ACCUMULO-802 is accepted.
