If this optimization only works in that scenario, it's dead in the water,
because that assumption is unsupportable.  The planner does not in general
use the same query snapshot as the executor, so even in an immediate-
execution workflow there could have been data changes (caused by other
transactions) between planning and execution.

Why do you need such an assumption?
