The amount of complexity that'd be involved to store catalog data in a separate relation around the caches and accesses would be significant.

For one, we don't auto-analyze/vacuum temp tables. For another, it'd be comparatively easy to gather reltuples/relpages/stats from session local state if necessary. Those are all only accessed from a few places.
