I don't see Index-Only-Scans being something that will be used in
"high churn" tables.

So as long as the value of these "covering/included" fields is tied to
index-only scans, maybe it isn't a problem?

Of course, we have have a hard time convincing people that the  "index
only" scans they want can't be "index only" because heap pages aren't
"all visible"...
