Yes. And the problem is that there is no way to prevent OpenSSL from

Isn't that sort of the point?
I'm not sure what you're asking. The desired behavior (IMO) would be to
accept client certificates signed by some intermediate CAs without
accepting any client certificate that can present a chain back to the
trusted root. This is currently not possible, mainly due to the way
that OpenSSL works.
Wouldn't that amount to only partially trusting the root? It seems kinda
odd. In any case, It's not something I think Postgres needs to solve.
