Not sure I'd say required, but its certainly desirable to have
updateable security barrier views in themselves. And it comes across
to me as a cleaner and potentially more performant way of doing the
security checks for RLS. So I think its the right thing to do to wait
for this, even if we can't do that for 9.4

Realistically, we have a significant amount of work before we're ready
to pass a high security audit based around these features.
