Thank you both very much for your suggestions.

This would seem reasonable complexity wise, but i was wondering, is
there any way to skip the refresh phase, other in just ignoring the
objects, waiting for the persist stage ?

Sometimes you only care about new information. But i guess if your
state cookie is stored persistently, then provided the database is not
reloaded, you should only have a short refresh phase, say the next
day, if you wait through the first long refresh time ?

For this purpose, i presume the rid=xx value only indicates a unique
consumer of updates ?

So as long as you connect again using the same rid, the sync state
will be preserved ?
