Hi Tobias,

Thank you for the review.
Most of the issues you spotted have been fixed on the latest commit.
Regarding the `all_offset == true` issue, it is needed to invalidate all field entries in the ValueMap. We would like to only invalidate the entries of the nested fields related to the flattened field. But there's no infrastructure yet to easily identity which fields are related to a given flattened field. So the conservative approach is to invalidate all field entries.
