Comment (by spacedmonkey):

 Spent some more time on this ticket lately. I think this patch should go
 into core for the following reasons.

 - Priming caches for all network options in one query, reduces page load
 time and number of queries run on the page. See attached screenshots, that
 removed up to 14 queries per page ( in network admin ). This is a massive
 performance win.
 - With improvement to the `register_meta` function in earlier versions of
 WP, it now means that default values for a meta key can defined globally.
 Meaning that a network option could be register with a default value and
 type. There are a series of filter in the meta api that would be extremely
 useful for handling network options ( meta ). This opens up option in the
 future to have functions like `register_network_setting` ( a wrapper
 around register_meta ). This will bring network options more inline with
 options, see `register_setting`.
 - Remove the need for the `'site-options'` cache group.
 - Remove need for `notoptions` cache.
 - Improve consistency with how other meta types handle meta data.
 - Removal of lots of code.
 - Open door to reuse meta REST API controller, to handle CRUD in network

 It is worth noting that is change does not close the door to #25344 in the
 future and is a good first step towards its.
