I think you'll need to rethink how a transaction commits rather
completely, rather than consider localized tweaks to specific functions.
For one thing, the WAL record about transaction commit has already been
written by XactLogCommitRecord much earlier than calling
TransactionIdCommitTree.  So if you were to crash at that point, it
doesn't matter how much the arbiter has rejected the transaction, WAL
replay would mark it as committed.  Also, what about the replication
origin stuff and the TransactionTreeSetCommitTsData() call?

I think you need to involve the arbiter earlier, so that the commit
process can be aborted earlier than those things.
