Not really, an API doesn’t choose which applications can use it or not. Here we’d be avoiding breaking applications that have the phone number of management.
You’re right, it doesn’t matter whether any of us are developers are not, I was incorrect to state that. There shouldn’t be any anecdotes involved in voting. It shouldn’t be about personal experience but about user experiences.
I’d say it is whether a project would feel like they need to put on the download page “here’s how snaps are broken” with a discussion of it. It is at that level for Inkscape. Inkscape Snap Download Page.
I would argue given the current state of the UI controls it either auto-connects or it doesn’t exist. Frankly, I was surprised I had to make this forum post I figured the issue was something wrong with my snap. It didn’t occur to me that I can autoconnect to X11 but not CUPS.
I would support autoconnecting cups-control for The GIMP as well. I think you’d have a hard time defining which apps are comparable to others.
