Yeah.  I'm disinclined to pre-emptively quote things for pie-in-the-sky
patches.  WITH is already a grammar keyword, so it's not a big deal to
tweak things to quote it, but adding a dozen keywords that have zero
functionality in the grammar is another thing entirely.

Also, the fact that this particular form of the grammar requires
reserving the keywords does not prove that there is no way to have the
features without that.  I'd want to see us try a little harder first.

                        regards, tom lane
