-1 from me on that last bit.  I don't think that you can really
compare the postgres or template1 database to, say, the pg_toast
schema.  There's no real reason for people to ever care about objects
in the pg_toast schema, but the same cannot be said about template1,
which it's often necessary to connect to when running many of the
commands (vacuumdb -a, etc.) we ship with our distribution.  I think
this will just be confusing to users without any real upside.
