I don't actually see that it buys you a darn thing ... you still won't
be able to delete dead updated tuples because of the possibility of the
LRT deciding to chase ctid chains up from the tuples it can see.   You
also seem to be assuming that a transaction can have only one snapshot,
which is not something we can enforce in enough cases to make it a very
useful restriction.
