I'm a bit worried that you're going a bit over the top here. "Work well
with Flickr" is superiour than syncing raw files, but it seems like
you're proposing to shove *all* your photos to flickr and not store
anything locally. I think it would make more sense to just integrate
very tightly to Flickr so that you can easily pick out what photos you
want to put on Flickr instead of just dumping everything there.

There are various reasons why you'd want to do this:
1) Privacy (maybe you don't want to upload your "hot pix" or whatever)
2) Trust (I want to keep a copy of the photos of my kids growing up to
make sure I'll have it around)
3) Not dumping shitloads of boring crap on your flickr page making it
usless for showing actually interesting photos
4) There are things like upload limits on flickr
