Why?  There are already many ways how to prevent running timers for a
while in Emacs, like running a piece of Elisp code or calling a process
synchronously.  So what's the problem with the special-case
accept-process-output call?

I think that would mean that timers should be generally reentrant, as
well as some kinds of speech output functions.
