A problem with the Cloud Sync is that I do want to download the smart previews to my iOS device, but I do not want to upload the originals by cellular connection. I often forget to change the setting, and when checking some of my D810 images at the site — bang, my data plan is used in minutes.A separate setting for NOT to upload originals using cellular connection would be most welcome.

So you want an extra toggle to shut off all backups and uploads when on Cellular?

Exactly!
I rarely photograph with iPad (using instead iPhone), but when on the road without laptop I I occasionally need to check 70+MB RAWs on iPad and even retouch them.
Works great for me after the slow preview/import (when the memory card has lots of images) via photos app).
This is actually another missing feature: to upload directly to Lr.
