[Shapelib] Delete or hide Shape from Shapefile

I'm looking for a way to remove or hide a shape in a shape file. I'm
using MapServer to draw it, so it needs to be supported by MapServer,
The PDF found on the shapelib page shows there's a shapetype 0 (Null
Shape), can't that somehow be used? Otherwise overwrite the style to
have a width of 0, something like that? I find it hard to believe that
ESRI apps rewrite the entire file when a single object is deleted...
Despite already finding evidence that it's not possible
wanted to ask it nonetheless.
Any help would be appreciated,
With kind regards,
Speer IT B.V.
