A path to deploy bulk deletes without the strain stemming from entity composition rebalancing.

In our current bulk delete of a system (~144M across 4 record types), the TPS is very low as the process requires a constant kicking off of the match process, meaning that the re-balancing is taking a large portion of the compute. This seemingly impacts the TPS, which means that the bulk delete is estimated at the current size.

Given we are performing a bulk re-load/bulk match after the fact (the context is that this is a source cleanup), the re-balancing and match process are of no value, and simply slowing the process.

Would we have the ability in the future to push through a bulk delete without extra processes?
