Rather than focusing exclusively on TRUNCATE, how about "triggers" that
fire whenever any kind of DDL operation is performed? (Ok, truncate is
more DML than DDL, but still).

The reason I put triggers in quotes is because I'm not suggesting that
we actually put triggers on the catalog tables, since we all know that's
hard/impossible. Instead this would have to tie into command processing,
similar to what you're proposing for truncate.
