The code definitely will complain if you try to interactively SET
temp_tablespaces to a space you lack permissions for.  However, there
has never been a case in which people would hold still for warnings
emitted as a consequence of values read from postgresql.conf or other
background sources, and I doubt that the response would be different
if we made this variable act like that.  See for example past
discussions about what to do with invalid entries in search_path.
