What do you mean, that it'd be nice if devs don't have to care about how much energy the apps use?
I think it's sad that some devs no longer care about resource usage, the applications end up being slow, no matter how much hardware or OS memory management you throw at it. So letting people not care about energy usage is going to lead to more energy usage, therefore I think the PowerTop approach of naming & shaming is the only one that works in the long term.
