But that doesn't have to do anything with the rewrite system.
It has to do with the view creation step on setting up the
instead rule for view selection. There the AS clauses have to
be moved into the target list. The rewrite system doesn't
know if this rule is something that builds up a view.
Yes, I think this is a parser issue.
It can be handled in the same way as the following syntax (only the above is the standard):
create view myview as select lname as name, currsal as salary, whours as hours from wages;
