Yeah, let's do it so then.

Hm. Wouldn't it be just fine if only the server is able to define a
list of extensions then? It seems to me that all the use-cases of this
feature require to have a list of extensions defined per server, and
not per fdw type. This would remove a level of complexity in your
patch without impacting the feature usability as well. I would
personally go without it but I am fine to let a committer (Tom?) put a
final judgement stamp on this matter. Thoughts?

That's appropriate when keeping around objects that are aimed to be
tested with for example pg_upgrade, some regression tests of
src/test/regress do that on purpose for example. Now it is true that
an extension regression database will be normally reused by another
extension just after, and that there is no general rule on this
matter. Some contrib/ modules do this cleanup, others not. I would
have cleaned up the room if I would have coded this set of tests, but
as you're putting your hands in it I am fine with your decision and
that's really no big deal.

OK. I have no arguments against that.

This change looks fine to me.
