I think using this context in more scenario's can do harm for certain cases
as mentioned upthread.

However I think the other reason for not putting in Detail is that for other
cases when this message is displayed, it already display similar info in
message as below:

LOG:  process 4656 still waiting for ExclusiveLock on tuple (0,1) of relation 57
513 of database 12045 after 1046.000 ms

Also we might not have the appropriate info available at the place where
this message is generated unless we set global variable.

We have only information what LockTag has and for shared lock case it
doesn't have the info about tuple and relation.

I think now more people are of opinion that displaying whole tuple is
not useful. I believe it is good to go ahead by displaying just primary key
for this case and move ahead.
