This is thinko in it's own regard, origin needs to be created regardless
of the slot.

That will not help, issue is that we consider names for origins to be
unique across cluster while subscription names are per database so if
there is origin per subscription (which there has to be) it will always
clash if we just use the name. I already have locally changed this to
pg_<subscription_oid> naming scheme and it works fine.
