Though I might highlight this as the kind of issue that a bug tracker would
help avoid falling through the cracks and make visible to newcomers.

If we make a hidden regression_test_safety GUC then we could have
pg_regress enable it and have these specific tests disable it explicitly
with comments on why it's safe.
It might even be handy for other people writing application regression
tests depending on what other things it blocked.
A hook might even be possible to use the same way. pg_regress would have to
build and install a .so which might be tricky.
