Use the source, Luke ... a quick scan of command/comment.c shows that it
allows the owner of an object to comment on that object, and no one else.
Access rights to pg_description itself don't matter.
The general practice in Postgres is that system tables are accessible
read-only to everyone, but are writable only via specialized commands
(like COMMENT ON for pg_description). The database superuser is not
so restricted, and can shoot himself in the foot with abandon ;-)

An explicit "INSERT INTO pg_description" would be treated that way.
