I don't like CREATE RESTRICT POLICY much.  It's not very good grammar,
for one thing.  I think putting the word RESTRICT, or maybe AS
RESTRICT, somewhere later in the command would be better.

I also think that it is very strange to have the grammar keyword be
"restrict" but the internal flag be called "permissive".  It would be
better to have the sense of those flags match.
