> If major compaction occurs on a table with mutable indexes that have the 
> INDEX_DISABLE_TIMESTAMP set, we currently permanently disable the index, 
> forcing it to be manually rebuilt from scratch. This is to prevent it from 
> potentially being corrupted as we need the delete markers to remain in order 
> to guarantee the data table and index table remain in sync.
> An alternate approach (mentioned by [~an...@apache.org] during review) is to 
> detect this case in a pre-compaction hook and set the compaction up so that 
> delete markers are not removed. This would have the advantage that we 
> wouldn't have to permanently disable the index and rebuild it from scratch.
