I don't think we have a common understanding for PG's *database*
(created by createdb). Every one seems to have his own *database*.
According to your another posting,your *database* hierarchy is
instance -> database -> schema -> object
However SQL92 seems to have another hierarchy:
cluster -> catalog -> schema -> object
and dot notation catalog.schema.object could be used.
I couldn't find clear correspondense between PG's *database*
and above hierarchy because we have no dot notation for

AFAIK,schema is independent from user in SQL92.
So default_tablespace_per_user doesn't necessarily imply
