Hi again!
I've rebased my patch on Kirill's Y. branch kyukhin/gh-3482-remove-ipkey;
I've also have succeed in using  ON_CONFLICT_ACTION_DEFAULT instead of on_conflict_action_MAX.
This changes represented as "[draft] don't use on_conflict_default_MAX" commit on my branch.
I've have had to introduce small rule index_onconf that looks very similar with onconf. If I not mistaken,
you are going to get rid of Index on_conflict action; and this rudiment crap would disappear.
