full-writes vs. merges

If I want to update the links associated with some stored value, I
have to first read the value, update the links, and write back the
entire value. I'm concerned if that my data has "large" values that
this read-update-write technique will cause a fair amount of overhead.
I am wondering if there's any merit to this concern in practice. I
suppose the answer is dependent on one's definition of large, network
configuration, etc. Anyway, perhaps you guys can keep it in the back
of your head that perhaps CRUD operations on links might be useful.
More generically, perhaps some form of "JSON object *merging*" would
be in order.
