Alternately, we can record the creation timeline on slots, so we know
if there's been a promotion. It wouldn't make sense to do this if that
were the only use of timelines on slots. But I'm aware you'd rather
keep slots timeline-agnostic and I tend to agree.

Anyway, per your advice will split out the validation step.

(I'd like replication origins to be able to track time alongside lsn,
and to pass the timeline of each LSN to output plugin callbacks so we
can detect if a physical promotion results in us backtracking down a
fork in history, but that doesn't affect slots.)
