I also noticed this !

This is exactly why I prefer not to use it, and why I applaud this native implementation :-)

As for the missing ability to send partial updates:
that's up to the "big company" to fix.

Come to think of it, I suppose this is one more reason why 'modern' web development
consists out of 1000-s of small files with essentially 1 function... 
To keep LSP happy :)
