I don't agree with that reasoning in the least, particularly not if you
intend to "fix" it by redefining pg_table_is_visible() ...

What will happen if we change \d to work that way is that it will show
you a table, and you'll try to access it, and you'll get the wrong table
because the access will go to the one that really is visible.
