Comment (by sc0ttkclark):

 Had a chat in Slack with Boone about this a bit more. The consensus seems
 to be that the use-case for 'fields' would be too small to offset the
 cache-bypassing effects and bad developer practices it would open the
 flood gates to, for use-cases which really shouldn't be using this new

 I am undecided yet on how to move this forward, aside from someone
 stepping in to provide benchmarks with and without persistent cache, on
 the performance of the different 'fields' options, versus using the
 current work arounds.
