There's not much to add to the specifications.
There is CREATE TABLE statement, CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS statement,
CREATE OR REPLACE TABLE statement.
There is CREATE USER statetement, but no CREATE USER IF NOT EXISTS and
no CREATE OR REPLACE USER.
There is CREATE PROCEDURE, but neither CREATE PROCEDURE IF NOT EXISTS
nor CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE.
And so on. We'd like to have a consistent syntax and support "IF NOT
EXISTS" and "OR REPLACE" for all CREATE statements where possible.
