So the concept I was looking for is already there: on pg_database the
database owner is referred to as the DBA.

I'd like to be able to give permision to someone to control all
user-owned objects in the database, yet not be allowed to do anything
that touches filesystem or creates potentially unsafe functions.

This allows a separation of duty between people that run a service and
people that use it.

That should include the ability to dump all objects, yet without any
security details. And it should allow someone to setup logical
replication easily, including both trigger based and new logical
replication. And GRANT ON ALL should work.
