that is a good question and we should decide on a direction for that -
we already have a feature in shipping code that causes quite some
confusion in that regard(autovacuum).
What see I from supporting/consulting people is that there are more and
more people adapting autovacuum for there databases but those with
complex ones want to override them on a per table base.
We already provide a rather crude interface for that - namely manually
inserting some rows into a system table which is confusing the heck out
of people (they are either responding with "why is there now ALTER
AUTOVACUUM SET ..." or and equivalent pg_* function for that).
I'm not too sure what the most suitable interface for that would be but
finding a consistent solution for that might be good nevertheless.
