No, it isn't better, unless you don't care about avoiding record update
corruptions. The whole idea by using upWhereAll for cached updates is
because you have taken concurrency/conflict resolution away from the server.
Thus, by having all possible columns of the record in the update statement
will bring to your attention the case where another user has updated the
record and caused an update conflict for you. With cached updates and MIDAS
this is the only way to detect such a case and it is lousy at best.

Not in my book. I know of cases this could apply in and if so,
upWhereChanged would be what you want. I just don't see how this would be
considered desirable.

I don't recall specifically what you are implying here.
