As I said on the other thread, I'm not sure how reasonable it really
is to try to do anything about this.  For both the issue you raised
there, I think we'd need to introduce a new WAL record type that
represents a delete from one table and an insert to another that
should be considered as a single operation. I'm not keen on that idea,
but you can make an argument that it's the Right Thing To Do.  I would
be more inclined, at least for v11, to just document that the
delete+insert will be replayed separately on replicas.
