      Description

      This sentence is misleading: "Any statements referencing the view are invalidated on a DROP VIEW statement. DROP VIEW is disallowed if there are any views or open cursors dependent on the view. The view must be dropped before any objects that it is dependent on can be dropped."

      This isn't quite true. If a column is dropped with the CASCADE option, any dependent view(s) will be dropped. Are there other cases?
