Isn't that already done for SQL function's (fmgr_sql_validator)?
postgres=# CREATE FUNCTION clean_emp() RETURNS void AS
postgres'# DELETE FROM emp
postgres'# WHERE salary < 0;
postgres'# ' LANGUAGE SQL;
ERROR: relation "emp" does not exist
LINE 2: DELETE FROM emp
I mean to say that the above rule stated by you ("There is simple rule
- depended object must living before
they are >>used in runtime<<") doesn't seem to be true for SQL functions.
So isn't it better to do same for plpgsql functions as well?
For doing at runtime (during first execution of function) are you
planing to add it as a extra step
such that if parameter check_on_first_start is set, then do it.

In that case what exactly you mean to say in point a) ("introduction
a dependency to other object..") above in you mail.
