[Qgis-developer] GDAL 2.1 can update Geojson files - What is missing in QGIS to edit GeoJSON files ?

I have read that GDAL can now update GeoJSON  since version 2.1.0. See [1]

If I build QGIS with GDAL 2.1, would I be able to edit the GeoJSON as I can
for Shapefiles ? For the record, capabilities are defined here [2]

Perhaps the GDAL doc about "updating existing GeoJSON files" has a
different meaning that the need raised by Even Rouault here [3]

Or is the best approach to create a specific QGIS driver for GeoJSON ? I
would try to propose a PR for this if this is the best way to go.

Another GeoJSON related question. Any idea on the relevance of adding the
ability to create a spatial index file *.qix for GeoJSON layers in order to
improve rendering speed ?
