As I noted in the bug report related to this issue we may want to have
the apt cron job that downloads packages list be more smart about when
it downloads them. Also, the cron job probably should be moved out of
apt as well into possibly the update-manager package(?) and have some
sort of network manager hook, so it doesn't get fired off when running
on a mobile broadband connection, etc.
