Thinking about this some more, having per-change origins makes sense
when you're not using origin LSNs, such as when you're not replaying
from another PostgreSQL instance. So I _can_ see why it exists.

I guess this is mostly a matter of adding some comments and/or some
notes in the functions' docs to explain how it all fits together -
that origins can be per-change, that the txn origin is the origin that
was in effect at commit time, and that the lsn and commit timestamp
are always those that were set at commit time, so you cannot use a
per-change origin with the txn's lsn and expect it to make sense.
