In Postgres-R, I mostly use the terms 'local' and 'remote'.

Note that those terms only make sense if you limit yourself to thinking the master is pushing data out to the slave...

I think it'd make the most sense if the name reflected whether the trigger should be fired by a replication process or not; that way it doesn't really matter if it's a master or a slave... if the data in the table is being modified by a replication process then you don't fire the trigger/rule, according to the setting. But maybe there is some need to discern between origin and target...

That's why I prefer "origin" and "replica". I want to use the same terms in the sessions mode GUC, and there "local" could be misinterpreted as "doesn't replicate at all".

Also, if enums will be in 8.3, perhaps they can be used instead of "char"?

I don't like this one. It makes it impossible to provide patches, enabling this replication system on older Postgres releases. And you know that your customers will want them.
