Provide a way to deploy database changes such as adding a new field ahead of the full deployment.
Due to it taking an extra hour about for the DB entity updates and the required re-org activity a deployment that adds a new field takes longer than a normal deployment. Due to this want to be able to run it separately just like the on-prem version allows running dbverify separately from deploying an EAR.
Similarly we need to be able to do a deployment that deletes a field and then make the DB entity changes later including the re-org. The desire is to automate this as much as possible and what can't be truly automated should automatically raise a case for the DBA to for example re-org the database.
