As long as we're only talking about the LSN of a physical slot (and not
the xmin) I'm not sure it's that important that it's valid, as long as
it's not in the future.  But we could otherwise pretty easily assert
that the new value has to be old_value <= new_value <=
GetRedoRecPtr()/GetFlushRecPtr().  That should be sufficient for both of
your use-cases afaics?
