-1. This is an express violation of the SQL standard, and at least the
UPDATE case has reasonable use-cases. Moreover, if your desire is to have
training wheels for SQL, there are any number of other well-known gotchas
that are just as dangerous, for example ye olde unintentionally-correlated
I wouldn't have any objection to an extension that enforces rules like
these, but I don't think it belongs in core.
