Well RELKIND_UNCATALOGED can be usefully toasted in that data can be
compressed internally. I suppose we know none normally receive such treatment
at normal block sizes. If we want to make the tuple threshold configurable
down the line would we want it affecting initdb bootstrapping? My experiments
show it isn't a problem but I don't particularly see any reason why it's

We may want some future relkinds to be toastable but I don't see a problem
adding new cases to the test.
