create table ... select ...

In manual for V 4.1.7, section 14.2.6 it says:
select_statement:
[IGNORE | REPLACE] [AS] SELECT ... (Some legal select statement)
and later
CREATE TABLE new_tbl SELECT * FROM orig_tbl;
and later
CREATE TABLE new_tbl LIKE orig_tbl;
but it doesn't actually say you can or can't use:
other_db.orig_tbl.
My experiments say it can't be used that way.
This needs to be clarified.
Any why can't it be done that way :-)?
