Why not?  Just quit out of the pager when you've seen enough.

If the view definition precedes other data that is deemed more
important, then we'd need to adjust the ordering, but I'm not
entirely seeing the point of having to suppress the definition.

I especially don't like the thought of making it depend on the length
of the definition.  I would prefer \d not showing it at all.
