Hmm, yeah it could be dangerous, but on other side new columns in
pg_class doesn't protect superuser to set incorrect values. I guess that
put constrains on pg_class are not good idea and wrong values could
cause server crash (when reservedspace will be greater then BLCKSZ).
What about reloptions which can be set only by superuser? Or any other
