I'm inclined to think this was probably a good thing before 9.6, as a guard against accidentally writing an empty query into a script and thus executing more queries than you meant to. However, with the new end-of-command definition I think it's impossible to write an empty query without an explicit ";", so it seems fine now. Pushed.
