Hmm, I see your point. I'm personally satisfied with adding a new
proargmode to solve this as you suggest.

Where is RETURN TABLE defined in the standard? The only reference to
TABLE I can see is as a <multiset value constructor> (section 6.39 in
the current SQL 200n draft). That would allow RETURN TABLE(...), but it
would also allow TABLE(...) to be used in other contexts. I think
the right place to implement TABLE(...) per the spec would be in the
backend, as part of an implementation of the standard's multiset

Therefore, we probably should *not* use RETURN TABLE in PL/PgSQL, since
it would induce confusion if we ever do a proper multiset
