Yep.

Because I expect scripts to die when they produce errors, and find the 
recent change to be a step backward.

Because I am told that many people like to continue regardless of errors, 
in which case allowing tables to be created is way more useful & helpful. 
The same is true for database & schema creation.

On the question of schemas, how would you expect:

         SET magic_tablespace_variable = some_ts;
          CREATE SCHEMA foo;

to behave? Would foo have a default tablespace of some_ts?
