views may have rowid?
Inapplicable.  A view is not a table.

You can have a blue car and you can have red cars.  

Just because something is red or blue does not mean it is a car.

Similarly, a "rowid table" is not an index but a "without rowid table" is an index.  A view is not a table and therefore is neither a "rowid table" nor a "without rowid table" because it is a view, not a table.
