new database permissions for vcenter 6.0

Upgrading from vCenter 5.5 to 6.0 requires some additional database permissions, specifically VIEW ANY DEFINITION and VIEW SERVER STATE.  Are these only required during installation?  I've revoked them from the user in my lab environment, and the application started up without any apparent issues.  Is it a timebomb that is going to fly apart at some point in the future, or is it safe to revoke these after the install is complete?

According with official documentation, these permission are not listed as required only during the installation, see: Database Permission Requirements for vCenter Server
