CREATE TABLE and DROP TABLE can be done on-line, if you found anything in docs stating anything
contrary pls report this as a bug.

CREATE INDEX, DROP INDEX and ALTER TABLE will all be done but one should
not update the table from other MySQL Servers while performing this command.
In that sense it is not on-line. It is on-line in the sense that no specific action is needed
on the cluster to perform those actions.
