Is there a particular reason why pg_receivexlog only supports using
manually created slots but pg_recvlogical supports creating and
dropping them? Wouldn't it be good for consistency there?

I'm guessing it's related to not being exposed over the replication
protocol? We had a discussion earlier that I remember about being able
to use an "auto-drop" slot in pg_basebackup, but this would be
different - this would be about creating and dropping a regular
physical replication slot...
