This reflects previous consensus AIUI.  RULES came up in similar way
with the 'data modifying with' feature; it was decided that as long as
old stuff didn't break new features don't necessarily have to go
through the motions.  This essentially deprecates rules IMO, which is
fine.  Maybe a small adjustment of the note in the rule documentation
couldn't hurt; it currently warns based on performance...a heads up
that current and future SQL features might not be fully supported
would be nice.
