OK, I suppose.  It wasn't clear from the documentation.

That includes the upcoming "default" tables, I presume.

I was just fuzzy on the interactions among these features.

Yes, but I bias toward documenting a lot, and this restriction could
go away in some future version, which would make things more confusing
in the long run.  I'm picturing a conversation in 2020 that goes
something like this:

"On 10, you could have AFTER STATEMENT triggers on tables, foreigh
tables, and leaf partition tables which referenced transition tables,
but not on DEFAULT partitions.  On 11, you could on DEFAULT partition
tables.  From 12 onward, you can have transition tables on any
