Yes.  I don't see that any of the proposed features would be very useful
for answering the question "is my VM incorrect".  Maybe they would fix
problems, and maybe not, but in any case you couldn't rely on VACUUM
to tell you about a problem.  (Even if you've got warning messages in
there, they might disappear into the postmaster log during an
auto-vacuum.  Warning messages in VACUUM are not a good debugging
