But from what I have read, it aims and misses

You haven't read the entire story, I'm afraid.

MySQL programs are required to lock the entire table to perform updates.

That is not correct. Since version 3.23, MySQL has had the capability of locking at record level, using InnoDB tables.

I am administering an application where a MySQL database handles several thousand of concurrent updates, using transactions and referential integrity, without effort, providing a high level of efficiency.
