CHECK constraints that apply to the parent would apply to all
children, unless they are NO INHERIT, so even for regular inheritance,
it might still be possible to prove something by ignoring things that
won't necessarily cascade.

For partitioning, it may be that we've got enough restrictions in
place on what can happen that we can assume everything can cascade.
Actually, I hope that's true, since the partitioned table has no
storage of its own.
