Yeah, but it requires only one entry when a command processes
arbitrarily large numbers of tuples, so in practice it's not going to
need to spill to disk.  What Heikki wants to do will require an entry in
local memory for *each tuple* modified by a transaction.  That will ruin
performance on a regular basis.
