Thank you for the explanation and the swift action.
I just want to note that one reason regclass may be used in user tables (as opposed to, say, regtype) is that in PL/pgSQL trigger procedures there is a special variable TG_RELID, which provides a convenient reference to the table that pulled the trigger (this is the case for some of our uses).
