You have the trunk defined by the headers. Once a range from genesis to block n is fully downloaded,
you may validate upto block n. Furthermore after validation you can prune transactions spent until block n.

You would approach the highest block with validation and stop pruning say 100 blocks before it, to leave room for reorgs.
