This assumes that usernames on the remote site are equivalent to those
locally.  Which is helpful for the sort of local-loop scenarios we've
been thinking about, but is hardly watertight even then (consider
multiple postmasters on one machine).  For remote connections it seems
counterproductive; you might as well say "you must be superuser" and
keep it simple.
