It's doable, for sure.
The pieces I see as required for that are:
1. change the indexam API so that indexes can return tuples
2. make sure the DSM is suitable for index-only-scans. Ie. it must be
completely up-to-date and WAL-logged, so that if the DSM says that all
tuples on a page are visible, they really must be.
3. planner/stats changes, so that the planner can estimate how much of
an index scan can be satisfied without looking at the heap (it's not an
all-or-nothing plan-time decision with this design)
