The issue is not sending documents in batches, but the extremely slow
insertion of individual documents. I think that a large amount of use cases
involve working with a single document instead of batches. There is no way
in the world an end user would cope with a 5 second response time for a
simple CRUD operation.

Did you try batch=ok and bulk sending the documents?
