Of course that's a bit crazy, not only for trigger authors to
understand and deal with, but also for plan caching: it just doesn't
really make sense to have a database object, even an ephemeral one,
whose type changes depending on how the trigger was invoked, because
the plans stick around.  Perhaps you could modify NamedTuplestorescan
to convert on the fly to the TupleDesc of the table that the row-level
trigger is attached to, using NULL for missing columns, but that'd be
a slightly strange too, depending on how you did it.

Perhaps we should reject row-level triggers with transition tables on
tables that are part of an inheritance hierarchy, but allow them for
