You are assuming that the function language isn't interested in taking
some extra action when a reference to a parameter is recognized. This
is demonstrably false for plpgsql, for one --- it wants to build a list
of just which variables it will have to pass into each SQL command.
A hook function can take care of that, a passive data structure can't.
