A nice illustration of how people want their data synced, except when they don't:

This also comes up when attackers delete data from compromised accounts to obscure forensics and make recovery more difficult, or when people delete data accidentally:

I doubt this is a feature required for minimum viable product, but it is something to think about for when sync more mature.
