In most setups I've encountered, if you can CREATE DATABASE you can  
also DROP DATABASE. Not really something I want *any* Drupal install  
to be able to do :).

I would actually suggest the other way around, and that if Drupal  
detects that it can do such things that it sets a warning, just like  
how it does if the permissions on settings.php are too lax.
