      Description

      Today, the AdminClient creates topics by requiring a `NewTopic` object, which must contain either partitions and replicas or an exact broker mapping (which then infers partitions and replicas). Some users, however, could benefit from just using the cluster default for replication factor but may not want to use auto topic creation.

      NOTE: I am planning on working on this, but I do not have permissions to assign this ticket to myself.
