In general we do check incoming binary values to ensure minimal
validity.  I think when I did timestamp_recv I was thinking it was
just like int8 or float8 (respectively), in that any bit pattern is
potentially legal; I had forgotten about the range restrictions.

I haven't looked at the details of Stephen's patch (and can't till the
archives site comes back up) but the idea is probably sound.
