The rewrite_rules table as installed by the rewriter plugin doesn't contain a primary key.

Missing primary keys can cause: 
- Issues for group replication (GCS)
- Performance degradation for replication
- Performance degradation for InnoDB (http://blog.jcole.us/2013/05/02/how-does-innodb-behave-without-a-primary-key/)
- Issues for Galera based clusters

And this is a bad example for other applications/users.

How to repeat:
Install rewriter plugin and check table layout

Suggested fix:
Add primary key
