The DELETE commands generated by the foreign key ON DELETE CASCADE will
get rewritten by your ON DELETE rule. You probably do not want to do
this; or at least not make it an INSTEAD rule.
There has been some debate in the past about whether rules should be
able to break foreign-key constraints, but I tend to class it as a
"you should know what you're doing" feature. Preventing this kind
of error would inevitably result in a serious reduction of the power
of the rule feature.
