Fine with me.

Fine with me.

If we do as you suggest, we will have to add separate code for
tracking plan dependencies for SELECT queries. In fact, I am not in
favour of tracking the query dependencies for UPDATE/DELETE since we
don't have any concrete example as to when that would be needed.

If those unreferenced relations become references because of the
changes in options, we will require those query dependencies to be
recorded. So, if we are recording query dependencies, we should record
the ones on unreferenced relations as well.
