What will you do when initially fetching a page?  It's not supposed to
go directly into T2 on first use, but we're going to have some
difficulty accessing a page that's not in shared buffers.  I don't think
you can equate the T1/T2 dichotomy to "is in shared buffers or not".

You could maybe have a T3 list of "pages that aren't in shared buffers
anymore but we think are still in OS buffer cache", but what would be
the point?  It'd be a sufficiently bad model of reality as to be pretty
much useless for stats gathering, I'd think.
