If you can live with the limitations, one other thing you might try is
storing WORM data in the filesystem and accessing it via file_fdw.
There are a lot of downsides to this: file_fdw tables are read-only, so
you have to update the external file through some other means. Also,
I've never used file_fdw, so I'm not sure whether you can create indexes
on the tables - and even if you can, you would need to manually recreate
the indexes periodically because Postgresql won't see your updates.
