Per-deck sync options?

I understand that when I create a new deck it forces me to do a fresh upload/download rather than sync. This makes sense to me. What doesn’t make sense to me is that this operation seems to affect ALL my decks, not just the newly created deck. I wonder if it is possible or planned to allow per-deck sync options so that creating a new deck doesn’t delete all my data? (Especially a problem if I use Anki on mobile for studying, but use the desktop app to create decks.)

Creating a deck does not force a full sync - it’s other changes like modifying a note type that do. While it would be nice if a full sync were selective or not required at all, I’m afraid the current syncing protocol requires it.
