That makes sense.

That depends on whether you only want to see states of the database
which are consistent with later states of the database and any
invariants enforced by triggers or other software.  See this example
of how a read-only transaction can see a bogus state at REPEATABLE
READ or less strict transaction isolation:
Perhaps if the transaction using the pgsql_fdw is running at the
SERIALIZABLE transaction isolation level, it should run the queries
at the that level, otherwise at REPEATABLE READ.
