The reason for attaching the flag to operators is so that the system
(particularly the planner) can tell *which* conditions need to be
rechecked, and can prepare the necessary expression infrastructure.
I dislike the idea of having to be prepared to do that every time
for every indexscan.  The notion of having to be prepared to sort
(according to what?) is even worse.
