Both states, power off and sys halt, do sound pretty final and I would
assume something is broken, if power off is called before sys halt or
vice versa. At least I would never expect that the
reboot/poweroff/syshalt notifier may be called twice (and thats why the
heartbeat-trigger may crash).

But just in case, changing that behaviour in ledtrig-heartbeat.c would
be pretty easy, just remove the heartbeat_reboot_notifier (which plays
nice and deregisters the trigger on reboot) and use the panic_notifier
(which doesn't unregister the trigger but just turns off the led) for
reboot too. Another solution would be to unregister the reboot_notifier
in the reboot_nofifier itself. I've just seen one watchdog driver
(drivers/rtc/rtc-m41t80.c) which does that. But I still think such
shouldn't be necessary (and I haven't had a look at other
reboot_notifier users).
