I suggested it not for performance, but for simplicity of code. So if we
still need it, I agree to leave it.

Moreover, LP_DELETEed tuples might be useful for Bitmap NOT And/Or join,
not only maintenance operations. Union-side of bitmap should not contain
LP_DELETEed tuples, and Except-side should do.
