This points to a larger discussion about what precisely foreign tables
can and cannot inherit from local ones.  I don't think that a generic
solution will be satisfactory, as the PostgreSQL FDW could, at least
in principle, support many more than the CSV FDW, as shown above.

In my estimation, the outcome of discussion above is not a blocker for
this patch.
