Optimization access paths currently used for SELECTs should also apply to UPDATEs (and DELETEs)

Currently, as I write a SELECT query with a correlated Sub-select (and no other predicates), I see that the optimization for that query uses a non-correlated sub-select and the query runs very fast. But, if I use exactly the same predicate, but write the query as an UPDATE, the optimizer does not enhance the query performance in the same manner that was done for the equivalent SELECT query. So, I have to re-write the query myself. I would like to have the fast performance (logic) that was applied to the SELECT call to also be applied to the UPDATE call.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? Developers and DBAs attempting to get better performance
How should it work?

It should work in almost the same way that it works with a SELECT call.
