Imagine, the GC require scanning your full repo, if you add more data while you are doing your scan things makes no more sense, things you thought were to delete might not. That would be very hard to synchronise.

Also, I want to point out ipfs-cluster-ctl ipfs gc that gets arround that. It will schedule the GC in the cluster in a round robin like fashion. So for example with 2 nodes, the first node will run GC, then the second one. So you always keep at least 1 node running.
