I am planning on stripping out the atttypmod usage for string type input
functions (that third parameter). 

That was the wrong end to check, since it is the point at which storage
happens that things really need to be checked. Otherwise, no
validation/verification can happen on expression results, only on
constant input values.

Don't know if ignoring that area makes things any easier for you...
