I tried to observe the behavior with a bit modification of is_simple_subquery
that become to return 'false' always.
(It is a simulation if and when a view with security_barrier would be given.)

The expected behavior is to keep sub-query without flatten.
However, the externally provided qualifiers are correctly pushed down.

Do we need to focus on the code around above functions rather than
distribute_qual_to_rels, to prevent undesirable pushing-down across
security barrier?

postgres=# CREATE VIEW v1 AS SELECT * FROM t1 WHERE a > 100;
postgres=# CREATE VIEW v2 AS SELECT * FROM t2 JOIN t3 ON x = s;
postgres=# EXPLAIN SELECT * FROM v1 WHERE b = 'bbb';
                     QUERY PLAN
 Seq Scan on t1  (cost=0.00..28.45 rows=2 width=36)
   Filter: ((a > 100) AND (b = 'bbb'::text))
(2 rows)
postgres=# EXPLAIN SELECT * FROM v2 WHERE t = 'ttt';
                           QUERY PLAN
 Hash Join  (cost=25.45..52.73 rows=37 width=72)
   Hash Cond: (t2.x = t3.s)
   ->  Seq Scan on t2  (cost=0.00..22.30 rows=1230 width=36)
   ->  Hash  (cost=25.38..25.38 rows=6 width=36)
         ->  Seq Scan on t3  (cost=0.00..25.38 rows=6 width=36)
               Filter: (t = 'ttt'::text)
(6 rows)
