a suggestion...
There are people using metered broadband (common in rural areas of the U.S.) who would incur charges for syncing with Lightroom Mobile. Many have free hours, though, when data is unrestricted. Being able to schedule syncing (or disable it entirely in Preferences) would protect these users from unwelcome data usage charges and still enable them to enjoy the benefits of Lightroom Mobile by choosing when to sync.

Makes a lot of sens for situations as You explain.
I could add other motives  such as to desire to prioritize the pc's (or LR's) resources otherwise then for uploading. That could simply imply that You turn of synchronization manually, but on again over night, or each time wile on a brake, on the phone..Hence next step : Why not be able to program the other way 'round; to interrupt sync wile we work on LR, but automatically resume sync  after let's say 5 minute "idle" and depending on other (settable) software priorities.
