Nothing, and that's what I do. I just think it's a bit fuzzy. Maybe
I'm misunderstanding the purpose of REPLICA IDENTITY, but I read it as
saying "this is the replication key for this relation". If you use
REPLICA IDENTITY FULL then the replication tool goes "nah, I think
I'll pick the PK instead" is that really right?

It's not a major issue.
