yes attribute would be nice.

where is the reason of contention/ddlock ? We (or you?) only need to
update index tuple's header data (like TX min/max) and key is
untouched. So that all index scans should be able to go without
disturbing. Index page should be locked in memory only for few
ticks during actual memcpy to page.
BTW: IMHO when WAL become functional, need we still multi versioned
tuples in heap ? Why don't just version tuples on WAL log and add
them during scans ?
