Wishlist: a blockchain node that only syncs when either (i) the app was used in the last N minutes or (ii) the laptop/phone's battery is charging. Would substantially improve the user experience of using a partially or fully verifying node for one's day-to-day transacting.
Another possibility is a light node that has a trailing full-node verification process that only runs when the laptop or phone is charging (or even fully charged and still plugged in).
With stateless verification, more possibilities appear. For example, a light node that fully verifies specific blocks in order of total quantity of deposited stake held by nodes that submit alert messages about that block, running the verification process only when charging/ed.
