In this case, recover will return a null, which, correctly, will lead the TM to believe that there are no prepared or heuristically committed txs on this node - which is correct, since the node would have been reset to the last-known stable state prior to the failure.

Yes, this is case (1), as I had outlined earlier.  We don't deal with this at the moment and you're right that we should.  There is an open JIRA for this.
