[ic] Database directives clarification

I feel confident I am doing things right, but would like some verification,
especially on some things that were not really clear in the docs/archives.
#1, table 'foo' is in the databaseA running catalogA. CatalogB runs on
DatabaseB, but wants to also use DatabaseA 'foo' table. DatabaseB will need
A: catalogB/dbconf/foo.mysql (with appropriate User/Pass/DSN)
My real question is are B and C necessary?
#2 Using the same circumstances in #1 above, would CatalogB's foo.mysql file
reference simply foo.txt, or would it use an absolute path to foo.txt in
catalogA? I guess I am really thrown off by there being two .txt files for
this table. Something seems off putting about that.
Know that I am using NoImport on all these, but the question is bothering
me, and I 'd really like to know.
#3 The docs all mention NoImport being a catalog.cfg directive, however I
have been using it directly in my .mysql files. I also have .sql files in
place. Is my use of NoImport incorrect, and I am just not noticing it
because of my .sql files? So in my setup I might have NoImport in half a
dozen or more .mysql files, each one referencing only its table.
