This is not a viable model for most professional photographers.  I am not interested in LR CC for a number of reasons:

1.  I do not want to give up access to my images.  In order to retain access, I would need to continue to subscribe to LR CC.  
2.  There is no cap on what storage will cost in the future.
3.  The issue of upload speed is not realistically dealt with.  I shoot with a Canon 5DS-R that produces large raw files that would not upload quickly.  
3.  Although Adobe has reassured everyone that both LR Classic and LR CC will be available in the future, their videos with Julieanne Kost, seem to clearly be steering people to LR CC.

Agree, not a useable model if you use a camera for your photography.

1) It would take forever to ingest photos from even the smallest photo session (cloud upload)
2) It would raise the cost of using Lr sky high

So why on earth would i spend an awfull lot of money on something that will not work at all :-)

Adobe's marketing's always going to lean towards capturing new customers, so I wouldn't worry too much about that. In time, LRCC may become suitable for your needs, but there's no argument that it's not the tool for pro photographers in the foreseeable future. That's why Classic is still alive and being developed.
