Even if the dependency generator understood about nextval, it would
generate a dependency from the expression to the sequence, not vice
versa --- ie, the system would prevent you from dropping the sequence
without dropping the default expression.  It would not prevent ALTER
TABLE DROP DEFAULT, which is what's at issue here.
