Subject Re: any optimization in reading a partial schema in the decoder?

Yes. The writer+reader schema paired usage lets you do efficient partial
deserialization. Even if the fields are non-consecutive, in which case it
jumps over fields that it doesn't have to deserialize. In your case the
deserialization would stop right after the header is deserialized.
