Currently, REFERENCES foreign-key constraints are implemented with a
trigger that does SELECT FOR UPDATE on the referenced table. SELECT
FOR UPDATE requires write privileges on the target table, so you get
this behavior. It's generally agreed that that's not the desired
behavior, but I'm not sure what the state of play is on fixing it.
You'll find plenty of info if you check the mail list archives.
