What is the use-case for this? Won't this result in the word STRICT
becoming effectively reserved in contexts where it currently is not?
(IOW, even if the feature is useful, I've got considerable doubts about
this syntax for it. The INTO clause is an ugly, badly designed kluge
already --- let's not make another one just like it.)
