The point is, *we* might know our error numbers, but the rest of the 
world doesn't.

And CVE isn't just "someone".  A large number of security groups, 
government agencies, and OS distributors are involved there.  Using CVE 
numbers, the public can, say, correlate bugtraq or CERT announcements 
or Red Hat or Debian bugs to PostgreSQL patches and releases.  
Copy-and-pasting the CVE number into the patch message or release note 
entry really isn't that much to ask for that service.
