Right.  You haven't shown us much about the use-case you're concerned
with, so it's not clear what's actually needed.

We don't fetch that info unless we need it.

I'm not entirely certain, but there could be cases where a single
planning cycle ends up fetching that data more than once.  (There's
caching at the RestrictInfo level, but that might not be enough.)
So a line of thought that might be worth looking into is adding a
lower layer of caching to make sure it's not done more than once per
plan.  Again, whether this saves anything would depend a lot on
specific use-cases.
