In Adobe Lightroom Mobile we can give other users access to our smart-albums. There they can add comments, wich are listed under the picture back in LR.
My wish would be, that I can give these online albums to my client, where he can add 1 to 5 stars, wich then are synched back to my LR. So I can see, which pictures he prefers by selecting a filter (4 stars and above).

Are you wanting the client to override your star ratings or are you asking for a second set of star ratings that the client contributes to?

yes, overriding the star rating would be nice. 
But in the Backend there has to be the ability to switch this feature on or of for each album.

Personally, I would never want a client to override my ratings as those are likely what I used to cull the photos in the first place, but it would be useful to have the client also choose which ones they liked without affecting my ranking.  

Part of the issue is that LR Mobile was originally so you could do things with your own photos on an iPad without being at your computer, but now it's turned into I want my web albums to have full-featured client review and feedback also communicated back to my desktop LR. 

While having customer comments is nice, being able to search and filter on quantifiable fields like a ratings field would be great, so you can create a smart collection that contains both your and their picks.
