So maybe going for manual cache invalidation is not the best approach?

Right, they probably had their reasons for doing that - perhaps it was
just easier - but it sounds like something that we would want to

Yes, early on I have put it as one of the goals -- to avoid manual cache invalidation by the user; that's just not nice. And the user might forget to do it, or even not know about this duty (most other editors do not require manual cache management like that).
