Seems like rather a large hole in the ability to detect corruption.
In particular, this again assumes that you can accurately locate all
the hint bits in a page whose condition is questionable. Pick up the
wrong bits, you'll come to the wrong conclusion --- and the default
behavior you propose here is the wrong result.
