I think what I was recalling is the hazards discussed in the comments for
RenumberEnumType. However, the problem there is that a backend could make
inconsistent ordering decisions due to seeing two different pg_enum rows
under different snapshots. Updating a single row to change its name
doesn't seem to have a comparable hazard, and it wouldn't affect ordering
anyway. So it's probably no worse than any other object-rename situation.
