      Description

      It would be useful to allow some metadata operations if a user has only column-level permissions on a table. The two common statements are:

      DESCRIBE table
      and
      SHOW COLUMNS IN table

      DESCRIBE variants such as DESCRIBE FORMATTED should continue to require table level privileges, since they expose additional table metadata.
