Indeed, this is needed.
I've once found a "fast-list" or similar on github, that goes in that
direction. But no, we don't have it now. As mentioned, I have a plan how
to do it, but I haven't realized it yet. That's one of the things we'd
need to create as part of the framework.
That problem is inherent, because the XUL <tree> widget was originally
written specifically for Thunderbird. Firefox didn't need it. And it
might also go away now, if Firefox doesn't need it anymore.
I wrote about this in my proposal.
