I like it.

Will that test always hold true? Even if it is currently true, perhaps
there should be a code comment to say we rely on that behaviour later to
make EXPLAIN function correctly? We definitely need some code comments

Perhaps we should call it 'Ordered Scan' so that it is completely
different from 'Index Scan'?
