Actually, the page header size *is* maxaligned.  The problem is that

We could make it so, but that would change TOAST_MAX_CHUNK_SIZE thus
forcing an initdb.  I think simply removing the MAXALIGN operations
in the code is a better answer, as it eliminates some rather pointless
overhead.  There's no particular reason why the threshold needs to be
maxaligned ...
