Just because something may or may not have been true once (I could
just have easily imported the DB with another account while the WP
account had less privileges - by mistake or intentionally) doesn't
mean it will remain true forever.

I certainly don't expect any software to check for every potential
problem, that'd be ridiculous - the possibilities are endless, but it
should have the ability to say "hey, something just screwed up here so
I better stop what I'm doing" instead of happily chugging along with
undefined results and little to indicate a problem.

In this case, it may not be reasonable for the WP upgrade process to
check every single possible detail before performing an upgrade, but
checking to see whether or not its queries have executed successfully
and acting accordingly doesn't seem out of the question.
