Yes, it doesn't matter. The important point though is that nothing we

to its immediate parent's RT index, as I also mentioned in reply to Ashutosh.

I too think so, except we still need to incorporate changes to
add_paths_to_append_rel() necessary to correctly set partitioned_rels, as
I explained in reply Ashutosh.
