I apologize for simplistic ideas again. I presume that the equivalent tuple
header information is not maintained for index entries. What if they are,
probably only for the most commonly used index types to allow recycling
where possible? The extra space required would be recycled too. It would
probably also help save a trip to the tuple data pages to determine the
validity of index entries during index scans.
