Well, I would actually expect callers to do so. ON COMMIT PRESERVE or
DELETE rows does not make much sense for partitioned tables as
they have no physical presence (like today's thread about tablespaces
which you know about), but it looks better to just let the command go
through instead of complaining about it if we worry about inheritance.
And actually, your point has just made me aware of a second bug:
=# begin;
=# create temp table temp_parent (a int) partition by list (a) on commit
=# create temp table temp_child_2 partition of temp_parent for values in
(2) on commit delete rows;
=# insert into temp_parent values (2);
=# table temp_parent;
(1 row)
=# commit;
ERROR: XX000: could not open relation with OID 16420
LOCATION: relation_open, heapam.c:1138

This case is funky. The parent gets dropped at commit time, but it does
not know that it should drop the child as well per their dependencies.
This actually goes into the internals of performDeletion(), which is
scary to touch on back-branches just for such cases..
