> Looks like the bug FLINK-5479 is entirely preventing 
> FlinkKafkaConsumerBase#assignTimestampsAndWatermarks to be used if there are 
> any idle partitions. It would be nice to mention in documentation that 
> currently this requires all subscribed partitions to have a constant stream 
> of data with growing timestamps. When watermark gets stalled on an idle 
> partition it blocks everything.
