It's possible we will be able to go back to the old behavior in 7.4;
I haven't reviewed Rod's latest round of DOMAIN patches, but it looked
like it was trying to set up a less ad-hoc way of handling domain
constraints.  But I'm not sure if behavioral flip-flopping is a good
thing.  Might be better to leave it as-is.
