On the other hand, if WordPress was able to complete its installation,
it must have had the CREATE capability.  Why should it then prepare for
the case that somebody has taken capabilities away...  It is just extra
bloat in the code.

It won't be feasible to check for every possible misconfiguration out
there.  I think it is more feasible to accept that misconfiguration will
result in unwanted behaviour.

Best regards,
