Battery life. The Q's battery is feeble enough as it is that I always carry a bag of spare "potato chips" with me.
I already carry extra batteries also, but I don't take that many pictures on any one occasion, so I don't need to change batteries even once that often.. Even shorter battery life would be a known cost of using an adapter, and would provide yet another input into the decision of whether or not to use it. Frankly, I feel that the Pentax adapter is over-priced when compared to the cost of an 01 lens and to the cost of fully-functional adapters from other companies (*), so if they added this feature without significantly increasing the price, they would make it a much more reasonable investment.

(*) and taking into account that you still have to buy a tripod-mount before you have a complete system
