Add Optimize Layer Drawing Setting when publishing from ArcGIS Pro or using ArcGIS API for Python

There is an option called OPTIMIZE LAYER DRAWING under SETTINGS of an hosted line feature layer. It's annoying to check back that option everything that we overwrite the layer. It would be good to have 3 things:

1. Even if we are overwriting the layer, keep that option checked if possible

2. From ArcGIS Pro, add that option under CONFIGURATION

3. Add a way to update that info using the ArcGIS API for Python

It looks like this setting is exposed via the REST API, if not the API for Python:

Update Definition (Feature Layer)—ArcGIS REST API: Services Directory | ArcGIS for Developers 

That at least makes it available to Python scripts, if not the API for Python. Bringing those options into Pro would be a logical next step.
