Cannot overwrite HFS with views?

First time I've run into this - we've started using views for quite a few of our authoritative datasets. I just went to update one of the HFS source layers from within Pro and was told that I cannot overwrite a service that has views or sync enabled. What is the point of using views if I can't update the source hosted feature service? Doesn't that sort of defeat the purpose of having a main source and views built off that? So anytime we want to update the source, we have to delete all the views, update, recreate all the views and make sure they were setup exactly the same as before, what maps/apps they were in, etc.?
