Thanks, this works well.

Can it be instead done in such a way that initially (when loading a new
file) they are requested for the whole buffer, then on subsequent
changes they are only requested for the visible regions.

This has some edge cases like pasting a huge block into a selected
region (here, text will be changed beyond what is currently visible so
it will take some time when someone scrolls to that region) but IMHO it
seems strictly better than the present.
