Actually, when the UPDATE puts a new row version in the same heap page,
the index must be updated anyway.  All the rest of what you said is
correct.

There is another reason not to put visibility info in the index, which
is that it would be extremely complex to update all indexes to contain
the right visibility (and maybe impossible without risking deadlocks).
Updating only the heap is very simple.
