We already can't take care of everything with DROP OWNED though, since we can't do cross-database queries, and the overall process almost certainly requires additional effort (to reassign objects, etc...), so while I'd be happier if policies were handled by it, I don't think it's as serious of an issue. Still, I'll get a patch worked up for it and then we can discuss the merits of that patch going in to 9.5 now versus just into HEAD. Thanks! Stephen
