I think there should be a big, fat warning that self-referential

It seems pretty difficult for PostgreSQL rule system to avoid such
 kind of updates. I'm suspicious if UPDATABLE VIEWS can be implemented
 using the rule system.

Remember this affects all self-referential joins on an UPDATE (and DELETE?) not just views. It's just that a rule is more likely to produce that type of query.
