What happens if you replicate information_schema tables? AFAICS, those
tables are already in the subscriber database. And will it generate
error or warning? (I'm not sure how this functionality deals with
schemas.) Also, why do I want to replicate a information schema table?
Their contents are static and, by default, it is already in each database.

Information schema isn't a catalog but I think it is good to exclude it
from FOR ALL TABLES clause because the use case is almost zero. Of
course, it should be documented. Also, if someone wants to replicate an
information schema table, it could do it with ALTER PUBLICATION.
