There isn't a particular reason not to, except that the existing checks
are in C code and those would need to be removed and the permission
changes done at initdb time to revoke EXECUTE from PUBLIC for these
functions.  Further, as you pointed out, we'd need to dump out the
permissions for the catalog tables and functions with this approach.  I
don't expect that to be too difficult to do though.
