Seems reasonable.

Well by that point in the code, the query has been rewritten and the
row being reported is for the underlying table, so it's the table's
ACLs that should apply. In fact not all the values from the table are
even necessarily exported in the view, so its ACLs are not appropriate
to the values being reported. I suspect that in many/most real-world
cases, the user will only have permissions on the view, not on the
underlying table, in which case it won't work anyway. So +1 for just
removing it.
