rdblue commented on issue #751: Add an option to decide whether to delete data 
files in Catalog.dropTable()
   I think that keeping both data and metadata is the correct behavior. That 
way, drop removes a reference to the table, but the table itself is still 
readable should you wish to recover it. If Iceberg were to drop metadata, then 
it would be extremely difficult to actually use the data files that are left if 
you wanted to recover the table.
