We're not 100% consistent on that --- there are cases such as RowExpr
and CaseExpr where the same struct type is used for pre-parse-analysis
and post-parse-analysis nodes.  I think it's okay as long as the
information content isn't markedly different, ie the transformation
just consists of transforming all the sub-nodes.

Being able to behave sanely on a re-transformation used to be an
issue, but we no longer expect transformExpr to support that.
