One might argue that it will prevent current PostgreSQL users from 
unintentionally using those keywords and thereby obtain 2 goals:

1. The SQL code will be more portable since other databases may 
recognize the keywords.
2. Migration to a future PostgreSQL version where the relevant commands 
has been implemented will be easier.
