I still say this is just confusing clutter.  The proposed patch even
goes so far as to give the OID pride of place as the most important
item you could possibly want to know about a catalog, which is surely
silly.

People who actually want to know this information can look into the
pg_class catalog, which has the advantages of being complete (eg, it
covers indexes too), guaranteed up-to-date, and easily program-readable.
I really do not see the value of putting it in the sgml docs.
