Changing a field from Matrix to another fieldtype orphans the matrix table and elements #4736
I switched a matrix field to a plaintext field (I was actually trying to switch the field because the matrix field wouldn't delete, but that's another story).
I ended up deleting the field as a plaintext field and the matrix table did not delete.
I tried re-creating the field as a matrix and deleting again and the table is still there.
