Many things might be useful, but the aim of the "table partitioning" venture 
is believed to be the provision of a transparent interface to the existing 
do-it-yourself partitioning facilities.  Therefore, the logical definition of  
a table must continue to work unchanged (or alternatively, the use of the 
feature must be prohibited if that cannot be guaranteed in a particular 
case).  Other features such as uniqueness on a partition basis might also be 
useful but you can do that today and you don't need partitioning for that.
