Looking at pg_trigger I have the impression that there is no such thing

I understand the reservations about the TRIGGER privilege, but I think
that it is obvious anyway that anybody who can add a trigger can
basically do everything with the table.

Isn't the problem that they can do more than just things with the table? If the trigger runs as the owner of the table it can do *anything* the owner can do. So if we allow the alter privilege to include ability to place a trigger then that privilege includes everything the owner can do (including granting/revoking other privileges). Surely that is not what was intended. Arguably we should invent a concept of an explicit trigger owner.
