Good point. That's another good argument for FK constraints to disregard
RLS. In which case, is there actually any way to determine when an SPI
query is being invoked directly from an FK constraint? We'll need a way
to tell so RLS can skip adding the row-security check predicate.

Users who want FK-constraint-like behaviour can DIY with triggers,
getting whatever behaviour they need in the face of RLS.
