I strongly disagree.  Dropping a tablespace is not a routine activity,
and we don't have to have submillisecond response to operations that
are only needed when your first attempt to drop one fails.

As for the authentication-is-expensive issue, what of it?  You *should*
have to authenticate yourself in order to look inside another person's
database.  The sort of cross-database inspection being proposed here
would be a big security hole in many people's view.
