Database and catalogs should have creation time

      Currently, database do not have creation time like we have for tables and partitions.

      // namespace for tables
      struct Database {
        1: string name,
        2: string description,
        3: string locationUri,
        4: map<string, string> parameters, // properties associated with the database
        5: optional PrincipalPrivilegeSet privileges,
        6: optional string ownerName,
        7: optional PrincipalType ownerType,
        8: optional string catalogName

      Currently, without creationTime there is no way to identify if the copy of Database which a client has is the same as the one on the server if the name is same. Without object ids creationTime value is the only way currently to identify uniquely a instance of metastore object. It would be good to have Database creation time as well.

      Same applies for catalogs as well.
