I was also concerned regarding that, but just thought of informing
you about the option. But i think it will never fall down for tuples not
stored in the page. As we have the offset and the hint bits to mention
whether a tuple is there or not. Only the two byte size field will move down
by my suggestion. But your intuition has the most probability of success.
My concern was that it would make the page of a heap different from
page of a b-tree index.
