How about just calling this the PostgreSQL Server role?  Why should this
get the generic "database" name (what if the MariaDB maintainers want to
make a Database Server as well for example)?  No matter the engine,
users have to know what they are connecting to; there is no generic
"talk to the database server" protocol, so I don't see a reason to try
to make a generic database server role.
