There is no fundamental technical reason why Arch needs a full inventory

I would say that file renaming/move detection seems a good fundamental
technical reason for this isn't it ?

Why would it need a full inventory to detect moves when I explicitly tell
it "show me the changes on files FOO1 and FOO2" (when both FOO1 and FOO2
are at the same place as ever) ?

Right. Sometimes files will move from a selected directory to an unselected one, and that will be treated as deletion. That shouldn't be hard to deal with. Sometimes they'll move from unselected to selected, and that would be creation (of a file that already exists). Ugly.
