A pacman -Syu will do the same as a pacman -Syuw when it can't download
all packages ;). However, a user perhaps wants to update a few packages
that are important for development or regarding security issues and
might try to update other packages some days later, then Syu(w) isn't
an option. IMO we don't need to discuss this, likely most Arch users
don't suffer from bad Internet connections. Even if others should have
bad Internet connections too, it seldom happens that the dependency
issue for something important as the login shell happens.
