Goal

Are SYS grants really needed for Atomic and Config schemas?
Was noticed that the schema_creator when generates the schema creation scripts also adds the following SYS grants:

grant select on SYS.V_$PARAMETER to
/
grant select on SYS.V_$PARAMETER to
/
grant select on sys.dba_free_space to
/
grant select on sys.dba_tables to
/
grant select on sys.Dba_tab_columns to
/

Would like to revoke the above grants due to some internal security polices which prohibit granting them for the UAT and PROD environments.
