I suspect that most users would find it more useful to capture all of
the rows that the statement actually touched, regardless of whether
they hit the named table or an inheritance child.  I just don't know
if it's practical to make that work.  (And, of course, I don't know if
other people agree with my assessment of what is useful ... but
generally there seems to be support for making partitioned tables, at
least, look more like a single table that happens to have partitions
and less like a bunch of separate tables attached to each other with
duct tape.)
