How can we improve Power BI?

Rename query steps without refreshing preview

While renaming query steps (right-click rename OR right-click properties) when you apply the name change, it will re-run the query step. Why? Best practice to rename query steps yet for very large data sets this becomes cumbersome during the queries initial development. Note: I could be missing something valuable that would prevent this, please advise.
