If that's the problem you want to solve, there's no technical solution that will put you at ease. That's a people and trust problem. I don't think typical (or less typical) organisation should drive our technical choices too much, and I'm pretty confident they didn't in the past: pg_hba.conf is a file not because it's meant for this or that team but because it makes sense technically to manage the settings to allow using some resources *outside* of said resources. We currently have no way that I know of to disable ALTER ROLE SET and ALTER DATABASE SET effects, why do we need to provide that feature for ALTER SYSTEM SET so much?
