For precisely the reason stated upthread. That would mean creating and
deleting catalog entries for every transaction. Imagine a busy OLTP system
running hundreds of transactions per second trying to use a temporary table
for intermediate results. Mixing DDL and DML is just as bad an idea behind the
scenes as it is for users.
