Sure. Though I don't think it is a high priority task.

1) There is a table with bulk data updates periodically. The best found
solution to enhance performance was to drop all table's indices before
data update then re-create those again.
2) I (admin) have a few tables as owner and wanna give another user
(programmer) ability to create/drop any necessary indices. At the same
time I do not wanna give him (her) a chance to drop/alter the table

BTW, If ppl want to be more similar to Oracle, remember that it also has
the feature to manage indeces.
