Thank you a lot. I'll have a deep look by the Sunday evening.

Why do you still want to leave "ADD IF NOT EXISTS" instead of using
If someone wants to follow the standard he can simply not to use "IF
NOT EXISTS" at all. Without it error should be raised.
But we would not need to introduce a new grammar for a column property
which is single and can't be added more than once.
