Perhaps it would be useful for an FDW to be able to specify that user
mappings are meaningless to it?  And then bypass this check for such FDWs?

I'm not really sold on enforcing that people create meaningless user
mappings.  For one thing, they're likely to be sloppy about it, which
could lead to latent security problems if the FDW later acquires a
concept that user mappings mean something.
