pg_control would not be the right place for that structure. It's intended to be fixed-size (it's just a serialized C structure) and it should be smaller than a sector so that it doesn't suffer from torn pages. Not a bad approach overall, but requires some kind of new structure. And that increases the risk that it doesn't make 9.3. Right now, I'm honestly just trying to get the simplest approach that doesn't restrict these kinds of ideas if we want to do them later.
