My understanding is that the TupleID is only conceptual, so this is probably not a concern.
Further, since we only have one query at a time, and don’t read a block until it’s inserted
into, I think we should be fine. 

Thanks Shixuan! I’ll clarify all this in an amendment to that comment in a PR in the near

> Ah, so that just means that index subblocks may potentially have become dirty due to
the bulkInsert. However, it doesn’t mean that functions like getAttributeValue() are potentially
broken too, right? In other words, the TupleStorageSubBlock itself is still guaranteed to
be in a consistent state, only that it may be inconsistent with any index subblocks?
