Hello. Thanks for the opinions.

Well, if we allow to lose consistency in some extent for improved
performance and smaller footprint, relaxing the consistency of
database stats can reduce footprint further especially on a
cluster with so many databases. Backends are interested only in
the residing database and vacuum doesn't cache stats at all. A
possible problem is vacuum and stats collector can go into a race
condition. I'm not sure but I suppose it is not worse than being
involved in an IO congestion.
