That has nothing whatsoever to do with the Goodreads Sync plugin. This plugin does *not* change title/author in and of itself.

Anyway, once I get a match between my Goodreads shelves and Calibre I can do a metadata download to get anything else.
Yes that part is true - but that is what I said above - the Goodreads metadata plugin is used to download metadata about a book.

I also don't think "date read, rating and comments" are optional - if I omit the first two, I'm unable to sync at all - the shelf doesn't appear in the Sync options.
You have to have "some" rule in order to setup a shelf to sync. However that rule does *not* have to be one of date read, rating or comments. You can setup a rule to set a value in a custom column instead, for instance to set a #read yes/no column to "Yes" if the books is on your "read" shelf in goodreads.
