Custom symbols: how to bypass the delay caused by the dataUpdate?

When developing a custom symbol that uses PI Data, you typically use the DataUpdate function to receive the data. However, when a display is loaded, we have to wait 5 seconds before the dataUpdate fires the first time, adding 5 seconds to the loading time of the symbol. Is there a way around that, so we can render a custom symbol immediately upon initialization?
