Well, one of those could come automatically with a GUC_REPORT variable of
the correct type, no? So if we were to use the transaction_read_only one,
you'd get a notification on promotion because your transaction became
read/write, wouldn't it?

I think going through all those steps is moving the goalposts a bit too far
for the 10 release.

But if adjustment to the already applied patch is needed to make sure we
can improve on it to get to this point in 11, that's more on topic I think.
