    Glad to see this is in review; hoping this is backported to 2020.3.x.

    It's been more than 4 months, and Unity indicated this as "Quality of Life" section, but it is much more than that. It is project progress blocking issue.

    This is singlehandedly keeping us from updating from 2020.3.1, as a lot of our tools are built around lists of SerializedReferences.

    Can we please get an update on this? This is preventing us from moving on with our project.
