AFAICT, Bloom *does* do that. The reloptions are only consulted directly
while initializing the metapage.
I think Nikolay's complaint is essentially that there should be a way
for an AM to forbid ALTER INDEX if it's not going to support on-the-fly
changes of a given reloption. That might be a helpful usability
improvement, but it's only a usability improvement not a bug fix.
