Many DAs provide tabs to browse the schema.
And, it would be nice, when we had also ways to add new tables,
add columns and similar things (also I did not meet any DA

You may look at ZMySQLDA. I think it makes it quite well.
Due to Zope restriction, a Zope restart is unavoidable after the
installation of a new product.
