some mysql "experts" dont know for what is relational database and create thousands tables, so it will be nice to have limits for max number of tables per database to stop making this stupidity

How to repeat:
find stupid customer who create thousands tables "table$i" when he needs just one table

Suggested fix:
limits number of tables per database

Don't, you can't always protect everyone from their own stupidity.

People that use dynamic tables in their db design would probably just use dynamic databases if this feature was implemented. So what is next? Limit the number of databases per mysql instance?
