Provide online backup verification without performing actual backup

As our databases are growing into multiple terabytes size we do not want to perform an online backup every day.
However we do want to ensure, daily, that the database has integrity while it remains online, but without having to perform the online backup.

Ideally what we would like is to perform the online backup validation process but without doing the actual backup. ie something like the 'convertToBackup' but with the ability to run online rather than offline and without locking the structures preventing updates.

    ... So the actual requirement is to do a kind of DbFile::certify of a file that's allowed to be updated?
