No.  Even if it would, this would belong into
DatabaseMetaData.getColumnPrivileges().  getColumnPrivileges() could still
be implemented, it would just look at the table privileges instead.

Most likely, but it could also be any superuser.  Since we don't allow
grant options anyway I would just set it to null to not confuse the issue.
