Yeah, I was considering the same thing over dinner, though I'd phrase
it oppositely: keep a list of enum type OIDs created in the current
transaction, so that we could whitelist them.  This could maybe become
a problem if someone created a zillion enums in one xact, though.

The immediate question is do we care to design/implement such a thing
post-RC1.  I'd have to vote "no".  I think the most prudent thing to
do is revert 15bc038f9 and then have another go at it during the v11
