Can you define the "head record"? Is this the most recent one in the db,
the one that "faces" the freeze point, other explanation?

If the freeze point is the starting point, then there's no need AFAIK to
keep older records than it, assuming we are speaking about incremental
backups or I missed the boat... I'm used to miss it, anyway. ;-)
However, the problem that makes me think without a real solution is the one
you threw: how do you detect deleted records?
