The fact that views run with the privileges of the view owner is a bit
hidden in the documentation.

It isn't mentioned in /3.2 Views/, which makes sense as privileges
haven't been introduced yet.

It is explained in /37.4 Rules and Privileges/, but I think most people
using views won't have reason to read the docs on rules.

I can't find any other reference to it.

How about having a section under /20. Database Roles and Privileges/ on
views and privileges?
