Per my previous mail, I think we can change things so that Index
tuples effectively record that in all relevant cases. i.e., in what I
called separator key index tuples -- high key tuples in leaf pages,
and all internal page index tuples (high keys and downlinks/internal

We already store a minus infinity downlink on internal pages, which
doesn't bother diagnostic tools at all, despite being its own special
case without real Datum values.
