Doesn't sound like a mount limitation

Live view performance appears more simply a matter of implementation than any inherent  limitation in the way the lenses and camera AF systems interact.  There's no reason why it should be any harder for Nikon than anyone else to update their live view focus performance within the F -mount.

Just take a look-see what has been happening with lenses moved over to AF-P and E AF designations.  They seem to be quickly dropping the aperture lever from all their new designs, and introducing faster stepper motors.  A quick scan of youtube shows a quite dramatic improvement in AF-P vs AF-S live view performance - and these are lowly kit lenses working a sensor based CDAF focus loop.
