Allow for the bulk update of Attributes not included in Bulk Edit - PIM V12

At some point, Bulk Edit view can cause performance issues while loading over 200 attributes in PIM V12.

For example, we have over 300 secondary specs defined within our implementation of PIM.

Once we include these attributes as editable into Bulk Edit view, loading this view would take too much longer than expected and it will start slowing down PIM V12.

I think it would be awesome if we can still edit attributes of items using template without the need to have them included in the Bulk Edit view. We can always create manual templates which would include the catalog/spec/name of attributes for internal bulk updates.

Please reach out to me if you require a simulation or further insight of this requirement.

    As per product design the import works only on the attributes available in selected view. At this moment there is no further change planned in this feature. Incase we see more interest from user community we will revisit this.
