As I understand it, the problem is that while currently LIMIT without

It's definitely going to require stronger warnings than we have now
about using LIMIT without ORDER BY.

Along the lines of

NOTICE: LIMIT without ORDER BY returns an arbitrary set of matching rows

perhaps? I wonder how easy it is to detect that in the planner.

Or just a remark in the manual?
