I am not sure for the purpose of this functionality, why we need to
use a different HTS (HeapTupleSatisfiesVacuum) routine as compare
to pgstat_heap(). Unless you have some specific purpose to achieve,
I think it is better to use HeapTupleSatisfiesVisibility().

How about pgfaststattuple() or pgquickstattuple() or pgfuzzystattuple()?
